Thanks ladies. I shall re-pot it in a clay pot & move it from the bathroom.

By the way - I have never fed it. Should I have?


I only feed mine about once a month Carol, using a Cactus feed.

I use cactus food too but only twice a year early spring and middle of the summer.

I will try your way mups as mine are fairly slow growing I keep 4 as I like to let a couple recover after I have chopped bits off them.

Yes, don't feed during the autumn/winter when they are 'resting', just spring and summer.

I also report mine into fresh compost at the start of spring too.
