HorticulturistPA writes: The towel idea is clever. I'm not from Cactus country, but the cactus isn't completely repotted. Is the cactus simply dropped in another pot? That's it? No additional soil around the exposed roots?

The new pot has insufficient amount of soil so the cactus is seated at least 30% below the rim. Visually, it is not appealing, and horticulturally speaking the lower half of the plant is completely shaded and the exposed roots will wither and die. Posted: 9:25 am on February 24th
