Cactus cutting technique?
    #955799 - 10/12/02 10:52 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Hey all,
I was just wondering, when taking a cutting from a San Pedro for planting, is there any better way to cut it other than just straight across? The reason I ask this is because I heard that the roots grow from the ring in the middle. So, if I expose more of this (maybe by cutting on an angle?) will it grow more roots?
Is there any other things you can do to a cutting to make it get established as soon as possible?

High,

In order to get a good rooting system on your cutting it would be ideal if you make the bottem of the cutting as a point.  It is very hard for me to explain because I am a Dutchy.

Just trying... From the bottem of your cutting you go up about 1 inch. From that place you start cutting piece of ribb away from the side to the bottom centre.
When the wounds are realy health than you can put your cutting in soil.
They only tend to make roots in spring and and summer, at least in Holland.

The reason why making a small point on the bottem is that if you don't it is likely to occur that rooting starts from a side which will lead to an instable root base which is needed to keep the cacti up when she becomes a big lady.

I hope  I was clear, if not do ask more before you operate your cacti :laugh:

Hey there,
Thanks for the info. I think I understand. Do you mean that I should be making the bottom of the cutting look a bit like a pencil tip? Maybe so it looks a little like this >

Is this what you mean? Should I cut to the edge of the inner ring, or should there be an actual point in the centre of the inner ring?
It is spring time here in NZ so I think it should go ok :smile:

High,
You got the point!!
Do not cut the wooden core. This must remain intact!!!
Goodluck :laugh:
