So why not have the final trilogy of all things cacti for the 34th episode of Plant One On Me? This episode we battle prickles and ants in order to pot some plants. Homestead Brooklyn’s Plant One On Me is an informal question-and-answer series on all your green home and gardening tips. Questions get sent in via here—below the videos, on Instagram @homesteadbrooklyn #PlantOneOnMe, or Facebook @summerrayneoakes and @homesteadbrooklyn. If you want to meet Richard in person, you can check out him and his full-of-character cacti every Saturday (during the warm season) at the McCarren Park Greenmarket and his son mans the Fort Greene Greenmarket. If you see them—be sure to stop by, say “hi” and get a cool cacti. If you like this episode and the others, then be sure to “subscribe” to this channel—and if you’re interested in getting more good green and garden tips, follow along on and on my blog, Video Rating: / 5

    Be careful with those bunny year prickly pears, I was transplanting the variety with a white glochids and they don't even stick in you or hurt at all but one of them blew up and lodged itself into my upper eyelid and broke off and scratched my eye for 9 days every time I blinked until I finally made it to the eye doctor and it could be pulled out, it was an extremely miserable experience. I went to the hospital after 2 days but they were not very helpful and said they couldn't see anything and just gave me some ointment LOL

    Love the series. When you take a cutting and put it into soil though, how do you know when roots have formed and it is OK to start watering? Or is it just generally safe to wait 2 – 3 weeks and then start?

    My jaw dropped when he grabbed the opuntia bare handed. I have a not so great experience because of their glochids.

    How is it even possible that your videos don't have thousands of "likes"? You should have your own cable TV show 🙂

    Richard mentioned organ pipe clusters. I have a old cactus very tree like with its woody trunk. It has a few groupings of tight "organ clusters" my question is should these clusters be thinned out at any point to help sustain healthy growth? also thanks very much for the information of propagation of cacti
