Beware the perils of waiting too long to repot when your plant outgrows its container. For the last year or so, I would look at this gasteria Batesiana and think, I really need to repot that, and then do something else instead. This year I decided the time had come. Turns out the time had almost past-I like to have never gotten that plant out of the pot! When I finally did manage to get the plant to let go of the pot, all the dirt was gone, and I held in my hand a ball of roots. Alas, once again, I didn’t think fast enough to take a picture of it before replanting it, so you will just have to take my word for it. The roots had even made marks on the side of the little pot, they were so crowded for space.
