Cuttings will be taken from mature plants. Expect a viable cutting. Viable meaning that in our experience the mass of plant material should be enough to raise a new plant. Sometimes this will be just one pad (for example large Opuntia pad), sometimes this will be two or three pads (Schlumbergera) or a mature sprout of another type of succulent. Some cuttings require a lot of patience to get rerooted. We will indcate so in the cultivation notes for the species.
