    Exclamation

    Hello!

    For some inexplicable reason, my P. moranensis decided to be a rebel and thrives in my terrarium. I haven't had him for long (3 months) and he's already twice the width of hiw pot, I guess that means I should give him a new, bigger home right?

    Well, if that's the case, what precautions must be made to ensure a successful transplantation?

    Here's what it looks like, it's pot is the same size as the heli's.
    The littles debris on the leaves are bits of food I sprinkled on him just the day before.



    Thanks.

    Hi cath,

    I would remove the whole "plug", soils & all, and place it in the new setting that is prepared with a hole for it that accommodates the plug. Also, try as best you can to duplicate the environmental conditions it is currently under - temp, humidity, lighting, etc.. - so as to reduce the potential for shock as much as possible.

    It's looking real good! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I've always liked the effect of having a small pot and a plant overgrowing it but that's just my oppinion. But I would just follow what jimscott did and they should be fine.

    yeah, pings do not need large pots becuase their roots sytems are sooo small!

    im going with sunpitcher on this one, Pings have small roots system, and your probably doesnt need replanting.
    just let it keep thriving until it stops growing bigger, or something.

    I also agree with Sunpitcher, and some Pings also shrink when they go over to winter rosett.

    regards Bjørn
