Question: I want to grow an Easter Cactus from cuttings

Answer: Your Easter cactus should be easy to propagate. Just snap off one of the segmented stems and break the segments apart, placing each piece in a container of moistened potting soil. Be sure to set them with the bottoms in the pot and the tops above the soil line. You don't need to break the segments apart. Instead you can just leave the arching stem altogether and plant it with the arch facing towards the outside of the pot. The cuttings should root in 3-4 weeks. Good luck with your project!
