    Have you done a update on this cactus planting? I am interested to see how
    it’s doing.

    Any cactus???

  • Mark Gaarz says:

    Simple and straight forward, Thanks. I would be interested to know how you
    did your edging. Contractors want to many of my dollars for extruded
    concrete edging….looks like you did your own as I don’t see any cut
    expansion joints. I have designs on doing such a DIY edging but can’t find
    the DIY tools on the net.

    and yeah im a beginner, most if not all the cactus’s i have are columars, a
    single stock cactus, and i was wondering if i could take multiple 4 inch
    sections of the mother cactus, and let them scab and put gel on them would
    they grow?

    Oh I got a lot yesterday from a neighbor and I immediately took them home
    and set them in some water. They sat in some water overnight, is that bad?

    hey i got a question i have a few cactus’s coming and i was wondering if
    after its scabbed up if its best to put rooting gel over the scab and then
    place in your cactus soil, or just put in the soil with the scab as is

    thats the kind of cactus that gives prickly pear right?

  • maria CALDERON says:

    It’s going to rot isn’t it. Should I start over?

    I know it’s been a couple years since this video was posted. but can you
    share how long it took from the cutting/planting stage to the size it was
    in this video? I’ve been gifted several cuttings, but they are (after 4
    months) still not showing signs of growth. Thanks!
