Division and repotting of Cephalotus follicularis


Recommended Posts

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)

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.
