    Hate to mention vendors but on two stops in two cities I found healthy San Pedro clearly labeled rooted 12-14" tourches for $6 each. SWIM picked up 5.

    They were not there last week so new stock.

    becareful buying from a large chain as many will put unwanted pesticide and such in their cacti which make it harmful to a user.

    I buy them to grow. If I did anything it would be with his older cacti while these would just grow in the summer. Two years from now and several cuttings later, SWIM doubts if "poison" will be on there by then.

    in trouts sacred cacti he states many chains use unwanted things that the cacti abosorb and are harmful to users. he ststes it is done to stop users. It is not sprayed on raedon is correct on would have to take many cuttings and a few years an it will be safe according to trout.
