Q.I Potted Two Christmas Cactuses Together In A 9 in Pot (they Were Each 4 in) But Now The Leaves Look Like They Are Trying To go Limp.
Did I do something wrong? They are in a good draining pot, good lighting and even have pebbles on top the tray since I have gas heat so I can add water if needed. They only thing I’m worried I did wrong was watering them the day after potting them together, I wasn’t aware of the waiting suggestion but I didn’t “overwater” and I’ve been consistent with making sure it’s dry at least 2in deep before watering it. Any suggestions?

It's probably just transplant shock and they should perk up soon. However, they prefer to be a little potbound to bloom, so the repotting could affect their blooming this year, or at least postpone it. The best time to repot is after they bloom.
