Q.

Can I take cuttings from my Night blooming Cereus Cactus while it’s in bloom/flowering?

Zone 6167 | Chann81lopz added on January 9, 2019 | Answered

Move to a new home with a over grown cactus that top heavy. Live in Perth Western Australia, wanted to prune a month back But now out of no where it’s has started to grow shoots, bud n in bloom. Do I risk harm to the plant or just a short lived blooming experience by taking cuttings now. Will it delay the dry out time prior to potting or take longer to root once potted. Thank you in advance. Look forward to know advice from an expert in this area and not by others that are unsure but advise not to.
