I've posted this in the general info forum but I don't seem to be receiving any responses. I've reposted here, in the cactus and succulents forum, and hope you can help.

My cactus has smaller bits (pups?) growing on it and I want to remove them and repot them. How do I do this please? Is it the right time of year to be doing it? (I'm in UK.)

Thank you.

Welcome! Rachel, you are in the right place. I'm sorry I'm not able to answer your questions, except to tell you that if they are actively growing, it should be fine to separate them. Our experts will be along soon to answer your questions. Most are busy with family, etc. on the weekends. That is a cute looking specimen. Do you know which one it is?

Rachel, I just answered in the other Forum.
