Taking a cactus cutting
    #2773950 - 06/08/04 07:12 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hi, I have a friend with a large cactus in their backyard, it resembles pictures I've seen of Peruvian torch. It has about 6-8 ribs (not really sure) it's about 8 foot and has multiple shoots running out of a girthy trunk.

The last cactus cutting I was given had formed a callus which I was told would incourage root growth.

Are there any specific parts of the cactus where cuttings are best? Would it be better to take a younger pup or a mature looking side shoot (where the shoots join is often half the diamater of the actual shoot)

Also how long does a cactus take to form a callus?

thx

i think its something around 3 weeks for a decent callus.
