Even a few inches will often root and grow. I'd say 6" at least to make sure they do root.

i chopped up yesterday a t. glaucus in 3-4 inches cuttings, i'm sure they're more than enough...

My pachanoi centre cuttings rooted at 3-4" long.
5 out of 5 have rooted, a few weeks after being in soil, and one is now starting to produce a pup...

I think you can get faster growth with 10-14" cuttings.

i have once rooted a half inch slice of t. glaucus, it had 4 areoles (8 ribs) and it did pup before it died. =)
