Cyrtanthus Falcatus

Hello Folks,

I have this very beautiful plant growing in a large (and heavy) clay pot but it hasn't flowered in a few years. I'm thinking it may need to be re-potted as it has been in the same pot for a few years. So my question is should I try and pry the roots apart and re-pot it or leave it try something else.

Over the weekend I re-potted all my other evergreenish cyrtanthus in a very gritty mix of 75% pumice, 15% screened decomposed compost and 15% fine Orchiata bark and they seem to be perking up a bit. Previously they were in a mix that was much higher in peat moss but with other things added for free drainage, but there were lots of dead roots in the pots so I'm hoping a more airy free draining mix will be more to their liking. If anyone has any advice, I would very much appreciate it.

Thanks and Warm Regards,
