GARDENING: The Charlie Brown Christmas Cactus
Our Christmas cactus has seen better days. My wife said to do something about it so I'm repotting it. This is how it looked before I started.
First, it's off to the store to get some cactus potting mix.
Next, with some gloves because there is still a few small and sharp needles, I remove it from the hanging basket and knock off all the old mix.
I find an appropriate pot to put it in.
Fill about half way with mix...
...and tamp down.
The plant kind of fell apart when I removed the mix from it so I pick the healthiest looking piece and put it in the pot, fill the rest of the way with mix, and tamp down the mix very firmly with a hammer handle.
Water it in with B1...
...and put it where it will get normal watering.
Let's hope it come back strong.
