    Rootball

    I repotted my truncata and took the time to the some picture of the rootball. It was about 6x6x6 inches. The whole thing weighed about 1 pound. It also has 2 basals. It seems to the be the season, my izumiae also has 2 basals.



    Here it is potted up.

    I repotted my truncata and I think it died on me.

    Wow, big root ball. I think I need to repot my truncata soon, but I don't want to end up killing it.

    the key for truncs is making sure you dont hurt ANY of their roots. they are epiphytes and dont expect our rough treatment!

    I was surprised to see the size of the rootball. Will have to keep that in mind when it comes time to repot mine, didn't realise it would be so large. What size is the plant?

    The plant was 12 inches across when I repotted it. Here is a pitcher it made recently.
