Tips for Repotting Plants Like A Pro

Repotting your plants is an important part of plant care that can help your leafy friends grow bigger and healthier. However, it can also be a bit intimidating if you’ve never done it before! In this post, we'll share some tips for repotting your plants like a pro.


Choose the right pot

Choosing the right pot is crucial for the health of your plant. The pot should be slightly larger than your plant's current pot, but not too big. A pot that is too big can hold too much water and cause root rot.

Additionally, make sure the pot has drainage holes at the bottom to allow excess water to escape.


Prepare your plant

Dry soil can make it difficult to take your leafy friend out of its pot, which can harm its roots. To prevent this, water your plant a few hours before repotting.

This will make it easier for the roots to come out of the soil.

Remove your plant

Gently pull on the stem's base to carefully take your plant out of its pot. If the roots are tightly packed, use a clean pair of scissors or pruning shears to loosen them up.

Remember, be gentle when you're removing the plant from the pot to prevent damaging the roots.

Add fresh soil

Add a layer of fresh soil to the bottom of your new pot, and then place your plant in the center. Add more soil around the sides, making sure not to cover the stem too much. Gently pat down the soil to remove any air pockets.

It's important to note that the soil should be moist but not soaking wet.

Water your plant

Once you've repotted your plant, water it generously and give it time to adjust to its new home. For the next few days, try to keep your plant away from direct sunlight and regularly check the soil to make sure its moisture levels are just right, not too wet or too dry.
