It looks perfectly fine to me. I would soak it for a day and then pot it up. If you have Superthrive add some of that to the soaking water.

It looks fine. These plants can stay out of the soil for quite a while without being harmed.

Thanks Mark! Give your plant time..it will eventually bulge nicely Big Grin If you are planting in a container..try to get a shallow but wide container, and make sure you use well draining soil. Give it a few days in part shade after repot, before you fully expose to the sun.

Make sure the pot isn't a whole lot bigger than the roots. You can always up-size the pot in a few months. They are better off rootbound. Show us another photo once you've potted it!

Those are flower buds, don't over water! Actually, plant into moist mix, then don't water for at least a week. Buds easily drink too much and rot, ugh! If the plant is now in a very wet pot, dump it out and pot again with just moist.

The caudex should fatten up some in a month or so, it looks to me to be dry, as in raisin opposed to grape.

Nice plant!
