Help With Night Blooming Cereus
I don't have much of a green thumb, so I typically grow plants that are fairly easy to care for.
I was told that the night blooming cereus would be a good plant for me.
So a friend got me a large pot and put soil in it then these two large green leaves which I ASSUME to be clippings from the plant.
Supposedly he got them offline.
Now, unfortunately, I know very little about growing this plant and my friend gave me NO instructions at all.
Seeing as I'm not in the right area to grow them outside, I need to know how to keep it alive indoors.
Here's what I need to know:
Can I put the clippings [two] in a smaller pot?
Is there a particular soil I should use to get it to grow and produce the flowers faster?
How often should I water it?
Should it be in direct sunlight?
Is it safe to be around cats [I have 5... If one of them should get into the plant, I need to know it won't kill them or make them sick.]?
How exactly can I get the clippings to root?
Is there any tending I need to do for the plant, like clipping and such?
Any other info would be great.
I know more about the flower itself than the entire plant.
This young amateur planter would appreciate the help!
