Looking into cacti
    #117000 - 09/02/08 12:11 AM (9 years, 9 months ago)

I just moved to a new apt with a chill room mate so im thinking about starting out by growing a few cacti on the patio. I was thinking san pedro would be a good place to start. They are not terrible slow from what i have gathered, don't require too much maintenance on my end, and are quite effective.

If anyone has any advice on what would be the easiest way to obtain some cuttings aka (if anyone that grows cacti would be willing to sell me a cutting).

Also if you have any advice on what would be a good soil to use.

Thanks ahead of the comments

get a good clone (cutting) from a known specimen.  pedro can be pretty variable sometimes.  or go with T. bridgesii, they are fairly consistent and very magical!

both pedro and bridgesii are easy and fast growers, about the same speed.  pedro can be very strong or have nothing at all.  bridgesii are always good....well almost always.  some dont even taste bad.  one of my clones (almost dead now thanks to the rains) is very powerful and tastes quite fine, you can eat it as is without any problems!

look around, you can find something :smile:

get some pachanoi and bridgesii cuts...
soil: buy cactus compost. or start with regular compost and mix a load of grit and sand into it so it drains well.

If you dont want to order online you could always goto to a store like lowes and see if they have one. I have bought one from there today and im pretty sure it's a San Pedro. Also it was only $3.
