Things You'll Need
Cactus
Pruning shears
Shovel
Choose your cactus. Any with thick, fat pads and spindly arms will grow from cuttings.
Snip off a small to medium pad or arm at the base.
Cut the bottom inch or two off the cut piece and leave in a shady area for three days so it dries out.
Plant about 3 inches deep in a hole youíve dug. Secure with stakes to prop upright if needed.
Water daily for three days and then every other day for the rest of the week. Switch to weekly watering and watch it grow.
Tips & Warnings
Wear gardening gloves. Even cactus that look smooth are really not.
Donít drown them in water at any time or you will get root rot and some ugly debris in your yard.
