|Cactus out of pot.|
|What's at the bottom.|
|Remember your gloves for this bit!|
Once the soil is in, I tamp it down gently and add attractive gravel to the top. This acts as a mulch and looks nice, too. Then I brush off the cactus and pot, and it's ready for the next two years! I don't water them for a few days (some people say up to 10) because of the inevitable root damage during re-potting. The dry days give the damaged roots a chance to heal.
|Mammillaria with new soil. Ah!|
