Brian, thank you for posting the euphorbias as promised, they do look good as larger sized plants.
I do have quite a few Euphorbias, but mostly they are in smaller pots.
The bigger ones I have are showing their age, perhaps if I re pot them they may look
better.
Perhaps I should wait until the weather is a bit warmer before disturbing them ?

Hi Dot
I have a nice collection of euphorbias ,i have plants in smaller pots from 3inch to 12 inch.
I like the Medusa type , E. Gorgonis, E. Caput medusa, E. Enermis, E.Esculenta etc.
I repot my small plants every year and my larger plants every 2 years. I use 2 thirds perlite 1 third
J.Inns 3, i feed about 4 times a season Chempak 8. I always water from below so the plants have a
chance to take up the feed i see no point in watering from above as my compost is so open it just
runs straight through. I start repoting February into dry compost, In all i have about 200 plants of one
discription or other , i grow cacti as well as succs i do like adromischus the mat forming type.
I will start watering the collaction proper in early march , i do water some plants through the winter
Echeverias Haworthias Adros. never seem to get any problems doing this.
Hope it has answered your question on repoting.
Brianc.
