Mousey, just tip it gently out of its pot ...it will be fine.
You could use half soil and half sand but a small bag of john innes ...number 3.......will be perfect.
Mpc is multi purpose compost....those bags of compost everybody buys for pots. However, at the garden centre ask for John Innes compost instead.
aeoniums thrive on neglect really. I water occasionally in summer, grow in the sun and feed now and then as I said earlier.
best to regard aeoniums as temporary plants. I have plants rooted now from cuttings in early spring....i.e. cut the tops off and put it posts of compost.
