You should be ok with it if you pot it up as Suzanne suggests. I know in years gone past when I was a little over zealous in removing dried bodies & a body became detatched I potted it up & all was fine. one way of enlarging a collection :grin:

Re: BEF Pots are back

Excellent news. Order form has been completed & will be in the post tomorrow. Such a shame not to be able to order from Philip now but relieved that Manchester has taken on his mantle.

Re: Own soil mix for Cacti and Succulents
