This cutie is growing up so fast.
Three weeks ago [x]
I think I got my young strawberry plants mixed up when I repotted this one because I didn’t think this was a white strawberry plant but it really looks like it might be. I’m not complaining! This plant has heaps more stawbz coming in than the other one that fruited a little while ago [here]
This cutting decided to send out some roots, about 5 months after being taken from the mother plant. I’d make a guide to rooting cactus cuttings, but there’s nothing to it. I just set this one aside on a cool, dry windowsill and forgot about it over Winter. No hormones or watering or anything. This works for all cacti as far as I know, but once you see root nubs forming you can pot them up and start watering to encourage root proliferation. Water cautiously to begin with.
I’m not entirely sure this works for cuttings of other succulents though. Certainly Stapeliads (things like Stapelia, Orbea, Hoodia etc.) seem to need some water to coax them into sending out roots. Keeping cuttings warm when rooting is useful too.
