Q. My Christmas cactus is not growing after propagating. What should I do?
Schlumbergera bridgesii - Christmas cactus propagation technique is below:
Not sure what's happening without seeing your plant. How large are the cuttings?
How to propagate:
Take 3" to 4" stem cuttings in spring or summer. Remove the cuttings from the tips down and allow them to harden off for a few days. Dip the hardened-off cuttings into rooting hormone and plant into a moistened, light, soil mix. After cuttings develop 1" to 2" roots, pot them individually into 3" pots.

- I'm having a similar problem. I bought cuttings about a year ago, planted them, they grew healthy looking roots, but there has been no new growth. At all. They look healthy, but nothing's happening. The other Schlumbergera I have are doing fine, so I don't understand the problem. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!
