Echinopsis pachanoi cutting health
« on: June 24, 2017, 05:18:40 am »

Recently had a Echinopsis pachanoi specimen with two pups coming out of the soil (see attached photo of babies and the mother). During a recent pot transplant I decided to pull them off and see if I could get them to make clones. The soil blend generally is very good for these sorts of cacti.

Any other tips to keeping these alive? Don't over-water? Any hormones / nutrients I should look out for? I normally fertilize soil once or twice a year with a blend of alfala meal kelp meal neem seed meal oyster shells, azomite, fish bone mean and humic acid. Seems to work good. Just leave it alone?
