  1. Do wait until the cutting has dried over at its cut spot. Or place them in water right away?

  2. I can watch your videos all day, such a calming voice and can't wait to try this, they're ADORABLE!!πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ₯°

  3. Can you put them in water right away after picking them? Or do you need to wait a day or two?

  4. When rooting in water do you change the water often? You put the cuttings in fresh without healing for a few days?

  5. Love your plants. How big does a cutting get? I have 4 do I put them all in one pot or their own?
    Great info πŸ’–

  8. I have Christmas and Thanksgiving cactus trimmings rooted in water. Can I just plant them straight in soil or do I need to let them dry? Do the roots need to be a certain length?

  12. Hello, I was wondering if we can we use rooting hormone on it before placing it into the soil?

  13. Amy, Can I give my new Christmas cactus cal/mag and epsum salt to avoid transplant shock?
