Small 9cm middle segment cutting for propagating your own Monkey Tail Cactus. Stick the lower end of the cutting in good well draining potting mix. You can buy a bag from me or you can buy a bag of 'Cactus & Succulent' Potting mix at the stores and a small bag of perlite, even better a small bag of pumice. Then combine two part C&S soil to 1 part perlite or 1 part soil to 1 part perlite. Store bought soils never add enough drainage ingredients.
Best to keep it under some grow lights with a warming mat below. If not, water by misting the soil. Only enough to just moisten the soil once a week. maybe once every other week. The cactus will spend the winter making roots and start to show upper growth closer to spring.
If you keep it under and grow light and on top of a warming mat, you can spray the soil more often. Making sure to only give enough water to moisten the soil, not get it wet. The small piece of cactus will start to shrivel up while it makes new roots, eventually it will start showing some top growth.
