How To Repot Houseplant/Indoor Plants ?

5 quick tips Repotting indoor plants !

  • Tip number one:
    Tip number one always wait for a repot a few months when you have a new plant arriving at your house now the reason for that is that you don’t know if that plant is stressed it can be stressed by from standing at the shopm it can also be stressed from the move from the shop to your home or it can be stressed from being moved from the greenhouse a couple of weeks ago so when arriving to your home wait for that repot until you see that it’s producing new leaves or that it’s in other ways showing you  that it’s feeling good then you can repot but as always the perfect time for repot in the year is always the beginning of spring when most plants are getting ready to grow because of the increase in temperature humidity and daylight .
Tip number two : Tip number two always use drainage holes in the bottom of the pot it’s very very common that plants get killed from standing in water by using drainage holes you get rid of that excess water and you’re helping your plants so if you have drainage holes either use an outer pot or use a saucer underneath your pot.

Tip number Three:

whoa this plant needs to repot now when you do that always go up one or two sizes of a pot what i mean by that is make it a little bit bigger and don’t make the mistake of getting a too large of a pot now the reason for that is that if you replant in a two large pot what happens is thatall of that soil around the roots will be moist for a longer period of time before they dry out and that can potentially harm the roots of your plant so always go up one or two sizes in the pot.

Tip number Four :Tip number four when you repot take that opportunity to mix in some type of substrate that will help you get good drainage by mixing normal standard planting soil with for instance pumice as we have here or perlite by mixing that with soil you’re helping that soil to get better drainage and you’re basically helping the roots to grow stronger if you want to know more about different types of substrates we have a blog you can go and reading to get more information.

Tip number Five :Tip number five when you repot make sure that you keep the plant in the same level in the new pot as in the old pot never cover the stem with soil when you’re repotting have the same level as before because what can happen if you cover the stems with soil is that they can get damaged and potentially rot .
