Cactus cutting help?
    #2335824 - 02/15/04 01:08 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

So I've take a cactus cutting and have given it time to callous.

I am going to put this in some semi moist cactus soil and cover with plastic, and put in a dark corner of the room and forget about it for a while.  Anything else I should take into consideration or change?  I also included the Sierra Nevada porter bottle for size comparison, and as shameless promotion of a very decent, though somewhat expensive beer :wink:

You should go to a nursery and get some rooting formula and dip the cactus in it. Then put the cutting in some moist, but not overly wet soil and perlite. With about a 50/50 ratio. Keep it in a well lit place, like a closet with the lights on. Don't cover it with plastic.You will most likely get a case of root rot if you do. Dont mist it either.
