How Many Cuttings to I need from my Christmas Cactus?
I received a beautiful Christmas Cactus for Christmas. Immediately I noticed that some of the stems had been broken off in transport. Not one to lose an opportunity to propagate, I dipped them in a rooting compound and put them in a special gel for rooting plants (it's great stuff). I now have four cuttings that are growing roots! My question is, do I need to take more cuttings in order to eventually end up with a fairly large plant, or can I just plant these and have them put up more shoots later? Will it grow into a larger plant in this fashion? I know it sounds like a dumb question but I have no idea how these plants normally propagate. Thanks for any help!
