Answer: Remove the dead shoot; it is not necessarily an indication that you need to repot. Have the roots entirely filled the pot and/or are they vigorously growing out of the drainage holes? Has it been more than a year or two in the same pot? If not, then you may not need to repot.<br><br>If you do decide to repot, I like to use a lightweight potting soil--one that contains a fair amount of peat, vermiculite and/or perlite. (Gardener's Supply sells a good, compost-rich potting mix by mail-order; their number is 1-800-863-1700.)<br><br>Keep a close eye on watering. That dead shoot could be an indication of overwatering (or underwatering). Or it could simply be making way for the other, stronger shoots.
