Can you tell I'm such a newbie at plants. Lol. I'm really intrigued by these guys.

Anywho, I asked about repotting with a little pebbles yesterday, and so I'm in the process of doing it now. Good thing too because its been almost 2 weeks since I watered this guy and when I got down to the roots they were soaked. Not moist but soaked. I can grab the soil and barely squeeze n the water comes right out.

Here's a pic of the soil. I hope y'all can see how wet it is from the pic. I rinsed all that crap off n let the sans dry a but before I repot. I will water in about 2 weeks to a month. Any advice on watering after repotting. Thanks y'all.

Anything orange is a root....all those big white things are pups that are trying to make their way to the soil's surface.

In your 2nd pic, you can see one of the white things developing a green tip. Attached pic shows one a little more mature, a new rosette in formation.

I'm glad I changed the soil, I got to see the hidden treasures it had.

Your plant looks cool!
