Depends on how you repot. If you plan on taking all the old media and putting it in fresh media , then yeah it will probably go into shock. Keeping the plant in the old media and just planting it in a bigger pot won't stress the plant as much.

The way to not shock them is to keep the existing media intact. Put new media in a larger pot and them make a hole the size of the existing pot. Carefully slip the plant and media out of the old pot, being careful to keep it together, and fit it into the hole. I did my Judith Hindles this way and they did fine.

Ah. If you are dividing them then you are going to have to separate roots. That will stunt their growth for this season and you will want to keep them out of direct sun until they start putting out new growth. Then acclimate them to the full sun. Or, you can use my technique and feed them to the lions. Keep them wet and let the strongest survive. They will look terrible but will probably recover. Want to guess how I know? :D

This is what I do, tough love. Yes, I do lose some, but the ones that survive pass on the genes that help them survive stressful times.
