The Q&A Archives: Transplanting Cactus

Question: I have a large cactus, in original pot. What time of the year should I transplant, in ground.

Answer: Cactus should be transplanted in the spring, when they're actively growing. If you transplant during the fall or winter when they're normally dormant, the roots will be subject to root rot from accumulated water around the roots. It's safest to wait until spring and transplant then.
