I'd suggest you detach those pups which look a little thin (maybe keep growing them inside) and cut the top square off to give mother nature a good start!

How far down should I cut the main branch after I remove the pups?

I want to start the pups on their own..

should I just take them off, wait for them to callous, then plant about an inch deep and not water for 2-4 weeks..

where should I put these freshly cut pups to allow them to callous over?

Leave the pups in a dry place, they shouldn't take very long to callous. I wouldn't even plant them an inch deep, just enough so it can freely stand by itself and not topple over too easily.

Heres a good method for cutting the main column, written by M S Smith

"Try to cut horizontally without cutting across any areoles if possible, while also trying to leave 1/2 to 1 cm between the cut and the upper-most series of areole.

If you have a six ribbed plant you will have 3 areoles at one height and 3 at another. Start the cut immediatly below one of these sets of areoles at your selected height and simply try to get the line from one side of the cactus to the other perfectly flat so that the knife exits at the same point below the areole on the opposit side from which you started. The second set of areoles should now be the upper-most ones and all equidistant from the cut. When planting the column be sure that it is planted as straight as possible in the pot and be sure to have the pot on a flat surface when growing so that you don't artificially create a "high point." The three upper-most areoles should now be at identical heights to trick the plant into producing multiple limbs.

Well I know that M S Smith is an excellent cactus grower, but I would have to say that the technique shown above would be dependant on where you live. Personally, I always cut my cacti at an angle. The reason for this is because during the winter months it can get reasonably rainy, and I have seen ones which have been cut flat begin to go mouldy all around the top, mushy and black, from water settling in the slightly indented callous that forms. Cutting them at an angle prevents this entirely, unless its really really wet for a long time. I've found that they always seem to produce at least 2-3 pups anyway, provided its a healthy stock.

If you did decide to cut it flat, just remember to keep an eye on the top of it, you might need to carve some little drainage channels or something.

Good luck and happy growing!

True words zee, if it's been raining a while I usually go out with a paper towel and soak up any pools that have formed in the callous.

I would love to plant my Pedro outdoors but I get sun in Winter and Summer differently. I wouldn't want to limit the sun amount to just the six months or less that the sun gets to one side of the house. Anything in total sun would be on the street where people who know would steal it. Prolly. Unfortunately
