Cobalt Mayhem , As for the closing statement, I'd like to conclude my observations. It's been around 2 Weeks. The propagation was sucessful as I noticed a nopales bud growing in the glochids. The Opuntia Humifusa was able to establish rooting within the soil. Currently awaiting other's results. Should be soon. Sadly, as for my other fellow-already-established Opuntia, seems to have began to die within the 5 week span of the nopale growing on it. The cause of the plant's shriveling is unknown to me-yet. I was forced to cut the pad and plant it within new soil.
