How big of a cactus do you have?..

The smallest I'd say to make your cacti is no smaller than 3 inch cuttings, that way you could plant them on their sides and get pups off the calloussed parts. Otherwise you could make them larger than 3 inches and plant them upright.

After they're cut, allow them to callous over for several days to several weeks, the consensus here is about 3 weeks, i agree with it. Callousing is best down by allow the cut ends to sit in nearly direct sunlight. Helps speed up the process real good.

what about when you harvest a cactus for "your purposes"? What needs to be done to keep the rest of the cactus thats still rooted from being damaged?
