what would be my best bet to get these puppies some roots? should superthrive be used? or miracle grow perhaps?
its dry in san diego usually but right now its raining like a bitch. also these were sold by home depot as trichocereus peruvianus "peruvian torch" the label had both names...and they're rather small not more than five inches tall, but should they be put in the ground or left in the soaking wet pots? :rolleyes:
how long should cuttings be left in the dark before re exposure to the elements, and how long should a cactus be left to callous-over before it gets repotted?

I would make sure the callus is completely dry, and then put them in some soil that has not been watered yet, and pack in down. For this time being i'd keep it by a window, for a day. Then water it and put it somewhere where it can get a good amount of light (preferably nice sun), but don't water it for a while because of the season we are in. It may take a couple months to get good roots because california is moving into winter. If you have any problems or questions let me know. I'm not a professional but I will do my best.
Happy growing :smile:

What's cut there should have hardened calluses (callii?), that can take a variable amount of time, then just plant it in some cactus soil mix indoors if you'd like, then move it outdoors in the spring.

You don't really have to do anything special to the one that's become yellow (etiolated), just plant it deep enough to support it in again some cactus soil, water it in once and don't water for a while. Move that one outside in the spring too.

Don't blast them with direct sunlight, but don't keep them in the dark either.
