    Typically, repotting and divisions are taken at the earliest of the growing season -- just as the first flat "vegetative" leaves are forming in the Spring. I've done it at other times, usually via clumsy accident and there were never any real problems. Just handle things delicately.

    Unless the Cephalotus is obviously root-bound, I would leave it in its pot for as long as possible . . .

    Well, my pot is a little too big and I need to change out the soil because the peat moss I gave it had fertilizer in it (without my knowledge). I bought my peat moss from Lowes, and after several of my plant's health started declining, I looked at the website and found the peat is laced with fertilizer.


    Not to mention the garden moss I applied to the top of the soil is becoming a pain because if it's too dry it starts growing fungus.

    I just transplanted my Cephalotus into a slightly smaller pot with fresh soil (one part peat, 2 parts perlite, and a sprinkling of sand and lava rock)


    I really hope it does okay.

    I am sure that it will be fine. These plants are not as remotely delicate as some would have you believe. I recently uprooted a large Cephalotus, wrapped it in long fiber sphagnum, and shipped it overseas. It went through the handling of DHL, customs and agricultural overseeing, and is now actively growing in Northern Italy.

    It didn't even lose a leaf . . .

    Beautiful! How old is your plant?
