When to re-pot your ceph?

by woowoo » Tue May 11, 2010 4:42 pm

There seems to be info telling you to repot your VFT every two to three years as they use up the nurturance in the soil, is the the same for Ceph?

Should you just leave it till it gets to big for the pot or should it be repoted now and again? i know they do not like the repotting so was thinking of when i do repot i should put it in a over sized pot?

Any help would be geat :)

Check the repotting section of this: http://www.flytrapcare.com/cephalotus-follicularis.html

Repot every other year and give it a large deep pot that allows for plenty of growth. A pot that seems "a little too big" is better than repotting into a pot that may be a little too small. It's going to be in there, growing, for about the next 24 months.
