Repotting plants can provide many benefits for the overall health and care of your plants. By repotting your plants, you can locate and reduce the risk of diseases such as root rot and prevent unhealthy, waterlogged soil. Keeping on top of repotting when your plants begin to show any of the symptoms listed above, is an important step as a plant owner to allow new and healthy roots to grow instead. Allowing your plants more room to grow, provides more air circulation to the roots and produces higher amounts of essential nutrients for your plant. In addition, repotting plants also allows you to multiply and split out a plant into lots more baby plants, replacing just the one with many!
Repotting plants is best in spring time, before your plant enters its main growing phase helping it to quickly re-adjust to its new home.
Water your plant a few days before repotting, this will help you to ease your plant out of its current nursery pot
We recommend using Peat-free Houseplant Compost when repotting your indoor plants.
Be careful when rehoming your plant and don't force or tug.
Choose a pot that is 2-3cm larger for small plants (<20cm pot) or c.5cm for larger plants. We recommend to always repot into a Coconut Coir Grow Pot and then out this within your new decorative pot.
