Cactus – budding: I have been having this cactus with me for over a year now.. it has started to bud as shown in the picture. I would like to know if these buds can be separated from the parent plant and can be grown

I have learnt and heard that most cacti can be grown by cutting off the bud, allowing it to scab over and then planting. We are actually trying that out with some other succulents in my office and have had success with Jade plants or Crassula ovata. I’m afraid we haven’t tried this out on cacti though google searches say that is how to do it.

Thank you so much! I will try as you say and keep the group updated on the outcome!

I have the same plant and in last few years I have made about 20 plants from one plant.
They grow well.

Thank you so much for your reply! Glad to know that I will be having more cactii! And may I know the name of this species?
