Starting a P. aculeata v. godseffiana from branch tips

Does anyone know if I can start P. aculeata v. godseffiana from the tips that I trim back? Just wondering.

My guess is, like the rest of the Pereskias, they are easily rooted from cuttings.

Maybe try some cuttings and let us know if they root.

I just trimmed it up last week. Wish I had thought of this at that time. Since I have never tried this before about how long should the cutting be?

Would be interesting to see if they root.

In my experience, cuttings root readily IF you stick them immediately--DO NOT let them "scab over" as you would other cacti or succulents. If the plant is actively growing, no rooting hormones are needed; if plant is resting, a quick dip in rooting hormones and gentle bottom heat are beneficial.

Seedmoney, your babies are very nice looking. About how long should I cut them? 3 or 4 inches?

Stephanie,
I cut them 4 to 6 inches long, depending on how much material I have available.
