When you have a pot with plantas that look unhealty, the best thing to do is repotting it to a new soil, in this case the soil i had this Cephalotus was very deteriorated and compact. So i transplated them to a new and bigger pot and more aerated that the previous one to avoid root roting.
First i put some volcanic rocks in the bottom
In second, i filled the pot with this mixture: peat moss: perlite: silica sand (1:2:2)
Photo of one of the clumps, look at the rizomes and roots!
From this division i took 10 individual plants!
To finish, i put a layer of silica sand to avoid some algae and mosses
I let the pot in a spot with indirect sunlight and with a zip lock bag to up the relative humidity to 100% and with this reducing the post-transplant stress. If all goes ok and with this rain week and decreasing temperatures we here in Portugal are experiencing, after one week i will take the bag off and put the pot in is definitive spot.
After 2 months i will update their growth.
