Night Blooming Cereus Cutting
Hello, I bought three cuttings from a Night Blooming Cereus plant. I was told to plant with the cut side down a couple of inches deep in soil and to keep the soil very very slightly damp until it starts to root (about 2 weeks). I gave it a tiny bit of water just enough to make the soil every so slightly damp once in that two weeks (it's 2 weeks tomorrow) The tips of two of the leaves are turning black. One had turned black and dried out. When i touched it, it fell off the plant. The other is black but is still attached and not dried out. Also there are little flies hanging around it. They seem to jump more than fly, but they are definitely flies, and not fruit flies. Is it too late to save them? Thanks, Amanda
