you can use rooting hormone for cactus or just a fungicide if you wish before you put it in soil. just remember a cactus cannot take in water, it needs roots to absorb it like any other plants so dont put the cutting in water :laugh:

yeah, you can use plant rooting mix or fungicide or just root it directly in soil. i only recomend direct rooting without fungicide if you are going to let it root outdoors. in every house i've grown cacti in i get this orange bacteria at cutting sites indoors. i always let cuttings callous and root outdoors myself.


Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

I never use rooting hormone on cactus. The cuttings or pups will root when they are ready. You can put them in dry dirt or leave them on the shelf and turn them now and then and they will root
