I've had my death cube rescue for 9 days now and I figure in another week or two I will repot it. I have my peat moss + perlite mix ready, spray bottle, pot etc. I've just had some mixed advice on the repotting and wondered if, based on pics, people could advise me which is the best way to go.
I had a suggestion to "slip pot" the plant in its current sphagnum moss straight into a pot with peat moss and perlite and just fill underneath and around the sides to minimize the stress on the plant, but I have also been told that is only alright if I know the current medium it is in is good.
Could you please look at these photos of my plant and let me know if you think I should just remove the sphagnum completely and repot in peat moss + perlite, or if this "slip potting" method would be alright on this occasion?
I have to admit, I am very nervous about untangling the moss, damaging the roots and setting off any traps in the process. Being a ground hugger right now, it looks like it will be difficult not to set any of them off in the process and the thought of stressing the little guy stresses me out :')
Any advice on which route I could take would be much appreciated.
Also, how many more days / weeks do you think I should wait? I've almost had the plant a week and a half if it helps and this is a 3" pot.
Thank you again for all your time and patience!
