I have a lovely Torch Cactus. We have been through some rough times together, mold, parasites, sunburn, root rot, and last but not least, transplanting! She has several pups that I removed and they are very healthy! I wanna create more of this beauty, but I'm not sure if I should dry out the wound of the pups that already has a very healthy root system, or if it would be safe to just go ahead and get the little guys in some good ol' cactus soil. Will the root system be damaged if I let the wound dry? Is drying the wound necessary?

Welcome!

You need to let the wounds scab over.
