Succulent growing in clay soil

wittyameta added on December 1, 2017 | Answered

I just started gardening, and didn't realize that the potted succulent I bought is planted in clay soil. Should I try to amend the soil, or should I replant it? Will replanting cause any stress to the plant? I'm worried about breaking off the plant when pulling it.

There are many succulent mixes available. You may repot, but have care with the roots. it is best to make sure the soil is very wet when you do transplant. This will make it easier to get all of the soil off without harming the plant. After that, you can treat them as you normally would.
