Severed cacti didn't root

klyde(8)October 27, 2013

Hey ho,

Wrote in the summer about some grafted cacti I purchased (on hylocereus). I severed them from the hylo, and tried to root them, but alas did all this too late in the season and they didn't root. I thought perhaps they were rebutias, but I believe they are notocactus/parodia's. Nice little balls of spines anyway.

My question is, will they toodle along alright for the winter and then root in the spring? Is there something I need to know about unrooted cacti? Their colors are good, and they aren't mushy at all. Like they are perfectly happy without the roots.

Thoughts, advice?

Keep them warm, in sun most of the time and mist once a week or so. If they're going to root, they should be rooted by spring.
