Here is our suggestions on repotting plants.
- Remove plant from old pot
Turn your plant sideways, hold it gently by the stems or leaves, and tap rock bottom of its current pot until the plant slides out. you may need pull it out to help it,but pls be gentle.
- Loosen the roots
Loosen the plant’s roots with your hands,also pls be gentle. you’ll prune off any threadlike roots that are too long, just confirm to go away the thicker roots at the bottom of the foliage. If your plant is root bound – the roots are growing in very tight circles round the base of the plant – unbind the roots as best you’ll and provides them a trim.
- Remove old potting mix
Remove about one third or more of the potting mix surrounding the plant. because it grew, your plant removed a number of the nutrients within the current mix, so you’ll be wanting to offer it fresh mix if you’re potting it anyway!
- Add new potting mix
Pour a layer of fresh potting soil into the new planter and pack it down, removing any air pockets. If your new planter doesn’t have a drainage hole, layer rock bottom with lava rocks or rocks, gravel, etc. before adding the potting mix. The goal is to make crevices for the additional water to pool into, far away from your plant’s roots.
- Add plant
Set your plant that you simply far away from the grow pot on top of the fresh layer of mix within the new planter, ensuring it’s centered, then add potting mix round the plant until it’s secure. make certain to not pack an excessive amount of soil into the planter, as you would like the roots to breathe.
- Water and luxuriate in
Clean up the potting soil on top and water well! Please be attention that a freshly repotted plant doesn’t get to be fed fertilizer.
