Watching, I think I'll start me some cacti soon, been meaning to. Just something else I'll have to learn about, but it'll be worth it though.

They are looking good and healthy EP!

I have been growing San Pedro for a few years now with success at making clones which is what you are intending making here. You ideally want your cacti of any species of pipe cactus to attain a length of at least 2 feet in order to support a 12'' clone and the mother that you are cloning from. Happy transplanting :)

Yes I know old post.🤷‍♂️ Great looking cacti!!

I'msure you already know or have discovered the grandiflorus is not active. But they make a nice cactus. I have one also. Just starting my magic garden with pereskopis, loph on peres, bridgei, a couple of t peruvius, morning glory and negotiating for a 12" fully rooted kratom. Fingers crossed I can keep the kratom growing. It's a small selection but need to start somewhere. Hoping to add salvia D and some SP hybrids by end of summer.

Thanks @MagicalCriminal!  Yep, the San Pedros are the only active cacti that I have, but my collection has grown quite a bit on the non-actives. They are all so beautiful and unique!

My wife recently got addicted to growing tropical houseplants and succulents/cacti. She over-watered the San Pedros and they got real soft and some rot at the tops. I cut off the rot on one and it’s callused over nicely, I think it will recover. The other needs the same treatment now. They’ve grown quite a bit since these pics, but conditions haven’t been ideal and some of the new growth is a bit thin, is very hard to give them enough light in my home.  One of her euphorbia was also watered too much and got soft, but it’s recovering too without any rot.

Here are some updated pics.

First the San Pedros:

Then the Trichocerus Grandiflorus:

That thin growth is probably due to inadequate light.

And the Opuntia (bunny ear cactus):

I took a cutting when I repotted recently, there’s a little new growth already starting:
