Dude, you don't change the soil! You just add to it, in a bigger pot. No wonder why some people think repotting is a stressfull operation!

3. Center the plant's root ball on top of the new layer of soil, in the new pot. I like to give mine a "little wiggle", just to make sure there are no air pockets.
4. Fill in around the sides with new soil. Bada-bing, Bada-bang.
5. Water immediately.
In my current case I'd over fertilized.
Thanks for the input though.
Take a butterknife and run it along the inside rim of the pot. That will dislodge any roots growing
into the pot itself. Then flip her over.
