Propagating a prickly customer

A little time out from growing foodie plants took me into the fly-away and a prickly task of propagating this cactus. Quite an easy job but these cacti can bite. Some people leave the young cacti to callous over befor putting it into a pot but this way works for me, straight into the pot as soon as I've cut them. Admittingly this compost that I've used could have been of a greater sandy mix but these will be fine at this time of year, later on definately a sandy compost.
