Potting Mix for Cacti
Fill 4 to 6-inch diameter flower pot up to 1-inch below lip of pot with moistened cacti potting mix. Press soil down and top up if needed.
Twist off one or more stems from existing plant (not currently in bloom). Each stem cutting can be 1 to 4 segments long.
Optional: Allow cuttings to dry for several days until calluses form.
Plant broken end of stem in potting mix, approximately one-half to one inch deep. If planting several, place an inch apart.
Place in bright, indirect light at room temperature 65-75 °F (18-23 °C) and water as needed.
