replanting cacti
    #3809087 - 02/21/05 01:18 AM (12 years, 7 days ago)

i was reading that it is not advisable to try to transplant a cacti to another pot for a number of reasons. is this the case?
if so, would it not be a good idea to buy an immature pedro in a small pot?

Transplanting cacti is an excellent idea.

It's essential to transplant cacti every few years to replace lost nutrients. Cacti not transplanted for a long time will stop growing and possibly die.

When root growth is restricted, transplanting is a good idea. Roots growing around the inside of pots is not healthy.

It's a good idea to check the growing medium for soil pests every year or when the plant seems to be going into a state of decline.

Transplanting is HIGHLY recommended when you first bring home plants. These plants might not only be harboring bugs but they are probably planted in a poorly draining mix which may lead to plant death in the future.

Two transplanting guidelines are that you want broken roots to callus before repotting and that you only want to go up one pot size at a time. What I do is completely remove all soil from my plants, allow them to heal for two weeks, and move them to completely new soil in a pot one size larger if warranted.

damn he answered before me. but he is correct, one of my pedros i received was turning very pale and light green due to this problem, the old pot was restricting the root growth severly. when i took it out, the roots were in the shape of the pot, i felt really bad for the plant and right away gave it a bigger pot. this spring im going to put it into the ground directly to see what the effects are. (the ground inside my greenhouse). it might get too hot in there?

really? well my greenhouse is big, and in the center of it gets to about 120-125f in the direct sun... but if i planted it near the back, with an open door it gets to maybe 95-100. so maybe i will do that.

I've seen some fairly large cactuses growing in small pots. You can replace nutes with fresh ferts. I give mine ferts about once a month in the summer.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)
