REPOTTING INDOOR PLANTS
When do you need to repot indoor plants?
The best guide is to take a look at the root balls. To do this, lift the plant out of its pot and check whether the soil is completely rooted. If this looks to be the case then it’s time to repot the plant, even if the size of the vessel no longer matches the size of the plant. As a general rule, you should provide a plant with new soil every three or four years.
The right vessel for repotting
When using a new vessel, you should make sure to leave two or three centimeters between the root balls and the edge of the vessel. The ceramic pots stand out with their natural material. Another advantage of the ceramic pots is that the plants don’t get wet as quickly and the vessels are more stable.
How do I recognize good potting soil?
