What is the best way to replant christmas cactus cuttings?


Answer by  Kris (797)

Cut the bottom of the stem tip section into the shape of a 'Y'. Plant it in loose, sandy soil. Cover only the bottom 25% of the cutting. Water lightly.

To grow a christmas cactus from a cutting, place the cutting in soil so that half is beneath the surface. The cutting will root and form a new plant.

When I do mine I set them in a glass of water in my kitchen windo until I see root hairs then I pot them. Once they are potted I feed them Jobes Plant Spikes for about 6 months and I have never had trouble with them growing.

Stick the cutting (cut side down) into some sandy soil, put into moderate light, and keep well watered. Soon you will see new sprouts on the edges of the leaf.

Christmas Cactus is very easy to propagate from cuttings. Like other cacti, the best method is to let the cactus set in a warm, dry environment till the cut end forms a callus. At this point you can either plant it in soil, or let it sit till it forms roots, and then plant it.
