The Q&A Archives: Type of plant and how to take cutting

Question: I have a large cactus type plant, that has a beautiful red flower with a yellow center, and would like to know what kind of plant is it and how can I take a cutting for more of these beautiful plants?

Answer: Oh my goodness! I can't identify your plant by the flower color so I can't be of much help in guiding you through the propagation process. Why not submit another question to this forum with details about the plant? What shape is the flower? Does it grow on a stalk or come from the top of the pads or leaves? What do the leaves look like? What size? What shape? What color? Does it have spines like a cactus? Whatever information you can provide about your plant will help us try to key it out. Look forward to hearing from you.
