Senecio hawthorii

This one hasn't done a thing since I purchased it. It's outside in a southwest exposure. Does it look healthy? I would like to repot it in a 3" terra cotta pot using Al's Gritty Mix. It is very top heavy in the 2" plastic pot that it came in. Is this advisable at this time of year?

sure go for it... seriously doubt you can hurt it much repotting it, but it will survive in that current pot for a another few years if you want to... it would be better in a heavier pot, though, so it will be less likely to keep falling over.

Thanks for the feedback. It is really top heavy and essentially impossible to keep upright. I'll think I'll move it to a terra cotta pot with gritty mix tomorrow.

Essentially impossible? Not so....just use a thicker layer of top dressing and that problem's solved (or use rocks to stabilize).
