GIVE THEM A NEW HOME
In nature, plants live freely with no defined barriers to root development, having access to nutrients and water present in the soil. But in your home, in the confined environment like a pot, nutrients need to be added periodically, so repotting, along with good fertilization, is necessary for your plants to grow happy and healthy.
The ideal time to repot your plants is late winter / early spring, with a new growth cycle starting. But since repotting is a time of stress for your plants, you should only do it if you observe some signs that indicate that your plant needs a new home.
If your plant shows any of these five signs, it is very likely that it needs to be repotted.
5 SIGNS TO REPOT
1. The roots are already growing through the drainage holes in the bottom of the pot, or they are curled up on themselves (root-bound).
2. The roots are pushing the plant upwards, out of the pot.
3. The plant is growing less than usual (attention: different from dormancy).
4. The upper part of the plant (foliage) is very heavy, causing the plant to tip over easily.
5. The potting soil dries out very quickly, more than usual, requiring more frequent watering, as well as a loss of elasticity.
If it's time to repot, use a quality potting soil such as our Soil Freshener to give the best home to your loved plants. And don't forget to use our Caring Mat to avoid the mess when caring for your plants at home.
