How do you skin a cactus?

The little clusters of spines need to be removed before cooking. If you want to work your way around the entire surface, you should lay the pad flat on a cutting board and then use a sharp carving knife to remove the surface that is attached to the main cactus. Once you’ve removed all of the cacti, it’s time to remove the stems.

You can use a pair of scissors to cut them off, or you can just use your hands. If you’re using scissors, be sure to use them in a way that won’t cut into your skin. I used my fingers, but if you don’t have them handy, I’d recommend using your fingernails. Just be careful not to get any of your finger nails into the fleshy part.

Once the stem has been removed, the next step is to trim the leaves off. This can be a bit of a pain, so be prepared to do it a couple of times. It’s a good idea to have a friend or family member help you out with this step, as you’ll be doing a lot of it.

The easiest way I’ve found to accomplish this is by using a very sharp knife, such as a chef’s knife or paring knife.

Holiday cacti require more magnesium than other plants. Fertilize monthly during the growing season with Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) mixed at 1 teaspoon per gallon of water, but do not apply the same week of the year as you would for a regular potting mix.

Cactus and succulents should be fertilized at least once a year with 1/2 teaspoon of Magnesium Sulfate per 1,000 sq. ft. of soil. If the soil is sandy or clay-like, add a small amount of calcium carbonate or calcium hydroxide to the fertilizer mix to increase the magnesium content. Do not over fertilize, as excessive fertilization can damage the cactus or succulent.

The same goes for plants that have been misted too often.

It is best to wait until your plants are fully grown before you water them.
