Rain Killed my Bunny Ears Cactus 😭I need your propigation tipsβ£οΈπŸ™
I was treating my cucumber cactus for scale and decided to tread all 3 cactuses in the pot to be safe... Then I noticed that Poe my Bunny Ears has major root rot. πŸ₯Ί

I think it happened a couple months ago when we had too much rain in LA and I didn't move him inside fast enough. I only noticed the grey center when he was wet as he's a fuzzy fellow.

So sad! But the little ears looks salvageable with propigation? Maybe?

Please give me your best tips to save him! Thank you ❣️ πŸ™ 🌡 β˜€ #propagationstation #cactusclique #BunnyEarsCactus

Stick the pads in soil! Give them some water and light! πŸŒ΅β˜€οΈ

Bunny Ear Cactuses are the easiest plant, in my opinion, to propagate. You take one of the pads, place it either in the same pot it was in or in its own pot, and some light and water will help it grow!

It took me about a month to start seeing any growth. I also had it under a grow light :)

Pictures: First one, I circled one of #Tumbles pads. That’s the one that had fallen and I stuck it in a pot and it grew! πŸŒ΅πŸ’š
@kscape Omg, thank you! β™₯ πŸ™ I'm so happy this won't be a huge challenge. I've learned now not to ignore my cactus so much. I just assumed they would thrive on my neglect and I only checked my succulents for problems β€” until now! I'll be sure to give them more love and put my reading glasses on when I water them! πŸ€“ πŸ˜‚
They break easily but you can stick them in dirt make sure that it is always damp until it has roots I hope this helps
Also you could stick it in a to go container with some damp moss that works amazing too
