Ian you tell us that Rhodohypoxis perform better if repotted every year. When do you do this and what is the mix they are in?

Mark ideally you should repot your Rhodohypoxis in January or February when they are dry before watering them.
Sometimes I do not get around to it until much later and this year it was nearly into April before I did mine. I got away with doing it this late because they were bone dry and still dormant but I would prefer to do it earlier.
