  1. Thank you so much for making it short and sweet and to the point. I can't stand when tutorial videos are 75% peopel just bumpin their gums' 🙂

  2. Hello. I got a top of a cactus (san pedro) that was about to die. It was very soft due to overwatering. So i cut about 25 cm of the hardest part of it but its still soft. some liquid is starting to come out of it. I would really like to save it. When should i pot it?

  3. Hi … I was given a cutting of Christmas cactus last night …two long stems. I stuck them into potted dirt immediately ….and now…after watching your video….realize I should have let the en scab over. Is it too late …or can I re-cut and start over? Thanks much.

  4. Did you say only sand ? So then you grew yours on ONLy on sand?

  5. Have you done a update on this cactus planting? I am interested to see how it's doing.

  6. Simple and straight forward, Thanks. I would be interested to know how you did your edging. Contractors want to many of my dollars for extruded concrete edging….looks like you did your own as I don't see any cut expansion joints. I have designs on doing such a DIY edging but can't find the DIY tools on the net.

  7. Oh I got a lot yesterday from a neighbor and I immediately took them home and set them in some water. They sat in some water overnight, is that bad?

  8. I live in Portland,OR and tried this but I watered mine at the end. My dad said I did it wrong will it die?

  9. Thanks, that is a really nice comment, I appreciate it. More videos to come soon.
