Repotting a cactus

Does anyone know if I will kill my cactus if I put it in a bigger pot?

It has started growing a lot and I want it to get bigger as it’s part of my kitchen garden

the only thing i’ve ever repotted was an aloe vera and it grew like crazy after that. i think you should be fine as long as you don’t damage the roots, but im not sure. maybe @DearZombie would know?

Ah I see here on your link it says to wait until you see roots coming out the bottom of the pot.

Had a look - I guess it’s ok.

Just based on the cactus, it looked like it didn’t have enough room in the pot to grow

You don’t have to wait that long. Just make sure you use the right soil.

Thanks - I will check in the garden centre. One near me sells a lot of cactus plants, so they must have this special soil

These are my favourite plants.

Had a peace lily in my kitchen for about two years, and it hasn’t died or anything, but it only had flowers when I bought it and it has never flowered since. Not sure what’s wrong with it.
