    I have just rooted a few cuttings from a Cereus (night-blooming cactus related to X-mas cactus). I was wondering if anyone has grown these before and can give me a few pointers.

    I have a giant mother plant.

    I grow it in full sun, 50/40/10 perlite, peat, orchid bark. Fertilize heavily. Water.. whenever.

    That soil mix isn't an exact measurment. I just eyeballed it and it's been about 6 months ago.

    Don't water too much or the bottom of the plant will rot. Super easy to grow.

    i'm not sure i understand which cacti do you have... 'couse "night-blooming cactus is selenicereus grandiflorus and "X-mas cactus" is schlumbergera truncata. and care of these three cactuses are different.
