Even though your cactus doesn't look unhappy, I'm sure that it would
apperciate a larger pot. Seems like it would be top-heavy and fall over.
The best method I can think of to repot your cactus is to wrap it in
blankets, canvas, etc. and get a good friend to help you lift it.
The cacti that I've had for 3+ years are still relatively small and
slow-growers. What type of cactus is it? And how do you get a cactus to
reach 6'3" in 3 years???
