Introduction: How to Propagate Cacti!!!!
Succulents are awesome to fill theb home with, even cacti. Cacti, and other succulents, are easily propagated by cuttings. You can have a whole new plant growing in just a week!!! Here's how.
Step 1: Locate the Subject!!!
Find a pup on your cactus, or a leaf on your succulent, and make sure it is healthy and strong. It will need to survive on its own for a few days, so try to find a juicy piece!!!
Step 2: Cut, Tear, Slice!!
Cleanly tear off your pup or leaf, trying to have even cuts on both sides. For succulents, you are done! for cacti, you will need to make on more cut. Cut your cactus about 1/2 in. away from the tear. Congrats! You are almost done!!
Step 3: Let Sit and Plant!!!!
Let your cuttings sit for 24 hours to a week to dry the cut. This will help prevent your cuttings from rotting in your planting media. After the cut dries, plant it. It should root in a couple of days and be a new growing plant.
