Hey I'm trying to root my san pedro but I can't figure out the best place to root it. I live in a place where temperatures get to high 90's on a daily basis even in shade. I know its a cactus but i read that it needs roots to absorb water to regulate its temperature. Currently I set my cactus up in my window sill with a heat mat under it. The soil in the cactus pot gets up to about 75 degrees and it gets a lot less sun than it would outside. Would my cactus be happier rooting in the shade outside or is it fine where it is?
IDK if this will be helpful or not but I'll tell you what I'm doing. I put them next to my east facing sliding glass door. It gets full sun in the morning, and I put a LED light on it till I go to sleep in the evening. Temps outside are 90-105 right now. I've been checking them out, looking for bleaching or any other type of damage like softening. I'm thinking maybe in another week I'll water them for the first time. I think as long as it's not paling or going soft you're on the right track.
I just got my answer from reddit just in case anyone is curious. I'm told that my cactus can handle temperatures into the 90's just fine as a cutting. It might even root faster because the high temperature will stress the cutting. As long as its in the shade and doesn't get sunburned the cactus will be fine.
