time of day for re-potting?

11 years ago

Hi all, I know I haven't been on much-- think about you all the time tho.

Yesterday I had to do an emergency re-pot because the bottom of the pot of my Easter Cactus was cracked so bad, I am surprised the plant didn't fall thru the pot! It was a cheap pot, not plastic. Believe it or not, it was a bio-degradable pot, made of plants and such. Dollar Store. I just thought it was pretty. But I had to re-pot my EC yesterday afternoon. It was hot in the shade and now my DH thinks I should have waited till morning when it is cooler. It doesn't seem to be stressing, so far. I put in just a bit of new soil, and tried not to disturb the roots.

So far it seems to be fine. But I was just wondering when is the best time of day to re-pot? I need to do it to 2 other plants because of the same issues :( (such pretty pots) But they can wait just a bit longer, but not much.

Just wondering is all.

Marjie :)
