I have a pencil cactus cutting that hasn’t shown any growth for several years. What’s up with that?
I was given 3 cuttings several years ago. The cuttings have been neglected for about a year - they weren’t dead but they weren’t growing either. I recut them, let them dry out then planted in soil for succulents. One died almost immediately, one is growing nicely, and the other one has done nothing going on 3 years now. Both surviving cuttings are in the same location and getting the same attention. Any ideas or advice?
