Q.Christmas Cactus Propagation Question

Zone Ottawa, On, Canada | Anonymous added on April 25, 2024 | Answered

I have successfully rooted a cutting with 2 nodes connected. However, it’s quite healthy and happy as a 2 node clipping and doesn’t seem to be interested in growing further. It’s in the pot with the mature Christmas Cactus it was cut from so I know that the conditions are favourable for a healthy plant. But here we are! It’s been healthy and rooted for about 4-5 months now I would say. Should I just give up on it at this point? Are there some parts that grow and some that don’t?
