I have mentioned before that I like re-potting; it gives me an opportunity to check on the plants health and to take the annual progress photos. The only problem with the constant upgrading of plants into larger pots, is they take up more space. Given how limited my current garden is, I try to minimise the amount of extra space and re-potting has become a sort of dance. The first stage is to group the plants into sets, going from small to large pots.
In this case the large echeveria setosa has got leggy and doesn't warrant all the space, so it was for the chop:
Now the largest pot if free and the agave ferdinandi-regis could be moved up a pot:
Next was the little aloe:
Then agave lophantha:
Maybe a little bit over-jealous with this one:
On the plus side it can go in a smaller pot, and next was agave parrasana meat claw:
The one the agave ovatifolia:
Finally the largest echeveria setosa cuttings could be rooted into the smallest pot.
And we're done. All plants potted up (or down in case of the accident) so they don't take up any more space. Of course it would be considerably quicker and easier just to assume I am going to have more space in the next garden.
