Can I re-generate Cactus?

Oh ... make a pad of folded newspaper for holding/handling the cactus if it's spiny

Can I re-generate Cactus?

I haven't done it for years, but what I used to do way back in my teens was to snap the baby cactus off the main plant by pushing it downwards until it snapped off - then leave it on the dry surface of the pot for a couple of days until the wound had calloused over, then pot it in a very gritty compost - you can buy specialist cactus compost from most garden centres. 

Good luck

Sealant for my acer?

When we're at MIL's for New Year she sends my black haired OH out of the back door at midnight and he has to come back in by the front door (unlocked especially for the occasion) bearing salt and a piece of coal.  MIL's family were Andersons and I believe there were Scottish ancestors.

My family (strict if not Strict Methodists from Bedfordshire) never did anything of the sort, having no truck with such superstitious nonsense   My maternal grandmother was a Mitchell and I believe there's Scottish blood a long way back, but it's pretty well diluted by now.
