When to re-pot cereus
I have read all the articles I can find but I’m still not clear if I should re-pot my night-blooming jcereus at this time, or wait. It is currently in the container I rooted the cutting in: a half gallon milk container, cut down. The original leaf I made the cuttings from is about 18” and the new leaf, with all the little ones growing from it is 25” long. Currently, the plant is growing a new stem from the base and a new leaf at the same time. It grows almost visibly and the stem promises to be a very big. Should I repot it now, or wait a while? If now, what size pot should it go into? I’ve also seen posts that say to use citrus/cactus soil and others that say use half potting soil and half sand. Does anyone have an opinion as to what would be better? Thank you for any help I can get!

We don't recommend repotting for a couple of years after starting a cutting.
