Rooted tiny pup!

A couple of months ago some creature, probably a possum, maybe a cat, attacked one of my San Pedro and ripped of its 3 small pups.


I put them in dry perlite, and they've all rooted now! This is the smallest of the 3 detached pups.


Has anyone ever rooted their pups this small before?

Congrats on getting your baby to root. As to your question, I've frequently gotten cacti that size to root. In fact, I have a small bag of cuttings that size I am rooting at the moment after making a bunch of areole grafts... as I used those small fry TrichocereusIMG_3839.thumb.jpg.cd785f9def2dcd7887491887b16197b9.jpg for stock believe it or not.

Interesting. Do you graft first and then root them, or the other way around?


I just read your other thread on slab grafting and it's reinvigorated my interest to start grafting. I've got a bunch of dragon fruit cuttings than I might try to use as stock.
