Hi this is Sophie, I have had her for about 15 years now. Although I do not have a lot of experience with cactii, I think I have done the right thing by her for all these years.
Although last winter I let her down, I had to be away for extended periods so I just had to water when I could. During the colder months she hardly drinks anything but every couple of months or so depending on the weather she will need a little drink. I usually just wait for a warm sunny day and give her a drink in the morning and her feet are dry by the evening. But I desperately needed to repot her and could not water her for months so I just had to water on some really bad days when the soil would have stayed wet for days. And this was the result two pups suffered from rot(sorry about the picture its the best I could get, and for some reason is upside down)
So what I am saying is I know what I did wrong, and that I need to repot ASAP. What I am having trouble with, is what exactly I should do before I repot. Or should I just go ahead and repot and keep an eye on it?
Thanks in advance for any help, I have actually grown quite fond of that cactus over the years.
