Propogating cacti

My friend has published a "how-to" on rooting plants and it gave me the idea that I should share a "how-to" on rooting cacti.

Cut half a leaf from the plant

Dip in rooting compound

Place in potting mix with sand added.


When it roots, it will start producing leaves on the sides of the old leaf.

Gradually repot to larger pots until you get to a 2 gallon pot. That should be as large as needed.
