Q.My Giant Christmas Cactus

Anonymous added on October 11, 2011 | Answered

I have a very large, very old Christmas cactus that is doing beautifully, but it has not been re-potted in many years. It measures about three feet in diameter. I keep wondering if I should re-pot it, or just leave well enough alone. I would hate for anything to happen to it. I have started many new plants from this one. The blossoms are beautiful. The plant is at least forty years old, maybe as old as sixty.

I would not repot it unless it shows signs of stress. As long as it is happy, which it sounds like it is, leave it alone.
