Summary of this course:
The most common method of propagating cacti is the Cutting method. Cutting cacti depends on the season and the best season for it is early summer. They are grown in a light bed and environment with sufficient moisture with regular irrigation.
But before the cactus cuttings, especially carnivorous cacti such as cereus, enter the culture media, the leachate of the plant must be cut off. To do this, the cuttings or cuttings of the cactus were previously exposed to direct sunlight for several hours in the summer until the leachate flow was cut off and then cultivated.
The soil composition of cacti should be sand and clay and a higher percentage of sand or gravel. Cacti need regular watering at longer intervals than usual plants, and the number and frequency of watering can be adjusted depending on the growth rate and season. Cacti grow in warm, bright areas because they are native to Latin America. Cacti need a lot of light and in low light environments they usually grow grassy and their appearance is out of cactus state.
