Bl Yellow Bird Is it too late in the year for repot? Female
Default Bl Yellow Bird Is it too late in the year for repot?

Hello everyone,

Its been a while since I've posted but I have a question about my new Bl Yellow Bird. Its a 'bag baby' from a local big box outlet and I'm thinking from past experience is that the media a bit dodgy. I am also see a bit of salt build up on a few pieces of the media. With it coming on mid-October though is it too late in the year to repot it?

Thanks in advance.

If the media is sketchy plus you see mineral buildup, repot it now. Better than hanging out in decomposing media all winter.

I've repotted the Bl Yellow Bird in a leca/bark mix (heavier on the leca) in a clear pot with an air cone/side ventilation. It's a bit over potted but the bottom of the pot up to the top of the air cone is covered in straight Leca to help with drainage. Right now I have it on a seedling mat to help stimulate root growth since we've had a significant drop in temperatures today and freeze warning for tonight.

Sounds like a good plan clueless. And putting on the heat mat will obviously help. Now watchfully wait and holler if there's concern!
