Cacti Propagation
    

    
 
    
As much as I love going to the nursery to grab a new plant, sometimes propagating an additional plant makes more sense. For Example, we love the look of having to cacti at our front entry but one made it and one didn't. I am going to propagate two substantial arms of the successful plant and let them grow into these pots as new entryway plants. I will then take the existing larger cacti, give it a bigger home and some TLC.
      
Below are the steps but remember you can also do this with smaller indoor succulents or cacti: 
      
STEP 1
Identify what type of cacti you are trimming. Does it have it's own rootball
or can you cut a segment like I did for my plant.
    
STEP 2
Cleanly cut a segment 4 inches or larger at the base of the segment.
    
STEP 3
Leave the new cut-off cacti/succulent in a warm dry area 
allowing the 'cut' to heal over. Make sure it isn't in direct sunlight. 
Fill desired post with a cacti/succulent specific potting mix
(this generally is a rockier mixture to allow for proper drainage). 
    
STEP 5
Plant your  cacti/succulent only deep enough to allow it to stand up. 
    
STEP 6
Give it a heavy water and put in indirect sunlight in a warm spot.
     
STEP 7
Water only when soil is totally dry. It should root within a month and
hopefully you start to see new growth just after that!
