    Heh. I've noticed that my Heli seems pretty tolerant of sub-par pot conditions. I had mine in the same pot it came in for about three years - I was scared to repot it by all the literature about Helis. Finally the center started to die out and I moved it out of desperation, only to find that it was planted mostly in peat/perlite with a small layer of live LFS on top. It seems much happier now - the pot I moved it to is at least several dozen times the size of the little two-incher it came in. Still not quite picture-thread-worthy, though.

    Noticed one of my older helis starting to look a little stressed.
    It has been obvious for some time it needed repotted but I just kept putting it off...
    Here is a quick point and click pic I just took LOL

    There was very little substrate left, can you say root bound!!!
