The one hoping will pup is about 1" green growth above the ground/root base part (Sorry do not have pic) ...part of me thinks I should have cut it to the base as when I have done this in the past with another cactus, I got 3 pups in a short amount of time growing out of the base....just few weeks.

I find the information about the 6-Benzylaminopurine, benzyl adenine or BAP interesting....however I see that it is a suggested neurotoxin so I have an inclination to believe this to potentially have negative effects on other attributes of the plant. While the results seem impressive, I'm just not sure it is a safe thing to use.

Frank, the top of your specimen clearly looks stressed and sickly (Almost looks like frost damage). As Pandora suggested. Hense re-enforcing what I've always said. The base pupping appears to be the plant compensating for such stressors.

Now why would that matter frank? Are you trying to discover my super secret revolutionary, extrodinary, flabergasting, scrumptious formula covertly yet intentionally embedded into my Avatar? Why would you want that little thing. :D

I did this...felt bad doing it...felt like I was damaging the plant...so I put it back together where I jabbed it.

heat sun and new planting media, time of year are most likely the more natural route to take, Maslow

Human intervention, you think too much, however plants accept death more easily then we do so I make no judgement.......
