    transplating now...?

    Could I transplant my pings now? In the middle of summer growth? How should I do it?

    If you want to and they need it. Might as well take a few cuttings while you're at it.

    Step 1:Take out of old pot.
    Step 2:Put in new pot.

    Now, I'm sure I lost a few of you after step one. If you think you need to review the steps, better go back and take notes on this complicated procedure. If anyone reading this can't chew gum AND walk simultaneously, then perhaps re potting just isn't for you.

    Wow, you don't say...

    But HOW do I take it out of the pot without crushing the plants?

    You just take it out of the pot dude. Very shallow root systems. Expect some leaves to come off if it's a Mexican.

    I mean.. I don't know how to make it any simpler than to say "take it out of the pot." That's like asking "HOW do I cut a pie?" Flip them over, pluck them out, it doesn't matter.

    I use a butter knife to gently take them out of the pot. mexican pings do very well transplanting. as jlap said, pull a few leaves off and place them next to the parent.

    Yeah, try not to rip it out, but just like pull everything out of the pot soil and all. Then brush away the dirt.

    Here's the "chip dip" approach to leaf cuttings:
