    I asked a lady if I could get a ctrting at the store. I got one, I really dont know what kins a cactus it is, it had a red looking ball on it sort of. Ans little kind of balls growing on it. The lady who wates them pinched of a little red circle thing and gave it to me. Should plant the cutting or but it in water so it would root like Cp cuttings?

    No, you'll kill it. Get some soil and put it in, water once, then wait till it is almost dry before watering again.

    Sounds like your little red ball came from those grafted novelty cactus. Big red ball grafted on top of a plain looking green stem? If that's what you got, your little red ball probably won't grow. I believe they graft the red ball onto the green stem because the red ball cannot photosynthesize. Therefore, the green stem is needed. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Well they aren`t iradiated they are just "freeks" that occured in propagation and they cant photosyenthisis,unless you have one of the varietys that have green on their stems as well. The purple ones I believe have some green on them.
