Re-potting curry tree

I knew my curry tree would need re-potted this spring, as it would dry out in a very short time after soaking. I sliced off most of the root ball, leaving just a 6" ball. I made some potting mix of peat, perlite, worm castings, vermiculite, and some diatomaceous earth, particles and powder. I put some organic granular fertilizer in it, and when I brought it inside, I moistened it with some Bt israelensis, like I always do with indoor plants. I put it in a 5 gal bucket this time - I might have put it in a slightly larger pot, if I had one, but all I had were much larger ones.

I didn't trim the top, but I will soon, as I need a half cup of leaves for a fresh batch of sambar masala.
