Planting Pencil cactus from cutting
I have a 6 ft tall Pencil Cactus that is top heavy and starting to lean badly from the high winds here in S. California. I would like to know, short of staking, which I don't think looks very good; Could I cut of the top 3rd, let it dry out for a few days and plant that to sort of start it over. Also, would it be OK to leave the trunk that remains in the ground after the cutting..ie. will it get new growth on it.
I'm a little new to this, so I'm not sure if there would be a better way to handle this problem.
Also, I know the issues with the sap...so I will take precautions
Thanks in advance...
