I am new to this website. I have learning difficulties too, so please be patient with me.
I'm wondering if I'd be able to grow the cactus from its babies (pups) that's growing from the mum?
Any information will be great. Please bear in mind I've got a learning disability to where big or fancy word's are hard for me to understand and words that most are used to tell thing's are hard to follow.
I thank you now for any information that is said to me.
I'm hoping that I've put a photo of the cactus and pups in if it helps.
Is yours called a Moon Cactus--or at least that is how I know them?
If so, these can be grown from pups, but it can be challenging. They probably told you no, because they wanted to sell more.
You can carefully cut them off and put them in sand or cactus mix soil and start watering when they get roots. They take a very long time to root--can take up to 6 months!
There is a video that may help you www.youtube.com/
I guess I am going to be the one "out" here and say - no - you cannot grow the Moon cactus pups on their own.
Sometimes people read some of the information on websites and do not always fully grasp what the writer is saying and it may seem like they are saying this or that can be done but maybe we missed a single word that changes the complete picture.
You can. You have to remove the babies and let them harden off. Then you have to plant in well drained soil. Instructions are here www.gardeningknowhow.com/
Thank you for getting back quickly.
Thank you for the link. This is the first time I've taken pups from any cactus so very new to this.
