    best time to repot?

    So my vft will need repotted this year -- the terra cotta pot is falling apart (I keep it outside until we start expecting conditions beyond hard frosts) and the moss growing on the media seems to be dangerously close to rising up and enveloping the vft. Currently, the plant is in the fridge.

    Now I know most plants are best off repotting in the spring and have read that spring works well for vfts too. But my question is, should I repot before it even begins to show signs of waking, or after it has started to show the beginnings of new growth, or does it even matter?

    Always best to repot while the plant is still dormant but vft's can handle it just about any time.

    Right now would be fine. Just make sure the media isn't frozen, otherwise you're asking for a bad time :P.

    Yeah, I agree. Now would probably be the best time to repot it because it gives the least stress to the plant.

    Well you live in Michigan so I figured it might be really cold there.
