It's a common houseplant,but when it gets going outdoors it can get heavy. Surprisingly,no branches broke,no stems snapped. I expected some being i had to slide it out of the pot and then life the rootball,spin the plant- now on the ground- around..then drag it more to the planting hole.

Jings, Stan! You must have superhero qualities there! Agree with Chris, it’ll be happy in its new home!
Well done on the transfer!

Thanks Kate. I am quite the he -man. My mistake was wearing a t -shirt. Should have worn long sleeves and bared hugged the plant..lift it,twist in the perfect orientation, and put back down.
It came me two days too late-lol.

Wow! That’s a large one. My E. trigona ‘rubra’ is about same height, but not quite as full. I need to move it outside, also. It’s going to a big pain moving it. Ugh!
