Question about Cactus growing conditions

Hillela G.


I am trying to propagate a cactus cutting outside. I was given a long "trunk"-like piece that I cut into 4 inch sections and placed each on its side in a pot of cactus mix. Some are turning yellow. Is this due to too much sun or too little? or too much water or too little? I know the pieces need time to root and have just been giving them a "sprinkle" of water each few days. Your advice is appreciated!

    It sounds like its getting too much sun, can you add some shading for protection? Best of luck!
