Taking Cactus Cuts


Today I cut off some fronds off a huge cactus; will they root just from a cutting and putting in regular potting soil, or do I need a special medium and an additive for it to take root?

You response is always very appreciative.

Durian Man,
Do you know what species it is? I’m not sure what you mean by fronds off a cactus – can you send a picture?

For most cactus and succulents you can let the cutting dry for a week and then plant it into fast draining cactus soil, not regular potting soil, and it should root.

Some need rooting hormones, some need extra heat, some need to be planted in the right season to root, and a few won’t root from cuttings at all.
