By damaging the growing point of almost any cactus you will force it to produce pups from the side of the plant because the plant cannot grow from that point again. In its damaged state the plant will often try to grow more than one new main stem and so if you are lucky you may be able to multiply your plants in this way. It would be wise to dry the damaged growing tip or to sterilise it say with powdered sulphur or charcoal. If an infection gets in at the damaged growing tip you run the risk of the plant rotting and dieing.
