    Default Re-potting my Neos

    I re-potted these guys after getting them from a local nursery but was not satisfied with the outcome as the sphag started collapsing after just a few weeks so I decided to re-do it. This time I used Hydroton inside the pot instead of the styrofoam peanuts and put the inverted clay pots wrapped with sphag. I also wrapped some string around the sphag to make it stay on the inverted pot.

    The black one was from my re-cycled pots. The green one I got from the same Bonsai nursery where I purchased the Neo.
