I got some clipping from a customer of min. He said to just place the in soil and they would root. I did what he said and its not looking good. I had it under a small cfl woth some of my other plants that seem to be doing well with it. I thought it might be getting to much light so I moved it with no improvement. Can one one give me some tips I have never had this kind of cactus. Here is a pic hope it helps . You cant see it vary well from the pick but the smaller stems look for soft and are just sort of saging over the side.
