Repotting a Monster

Oh the love and work you put into a plant, am I right? First you have to have an empty space, then a container, then the light conditions for that “perfect plant” you just KNOW will look great, then you have to pot it & well you get the idea. There is a lot that both the owner of the plant and the seller of said plant put into making everything perfect for that initial instal, but what happens when that perfect plant needs to be repotted? Well below I’m going to answer that great question!

First you have to notice the signs, it can be as subtle as browning leaves or no new leaf production or as in your face as a root growing out of the top of your container! Crazy, right?! The most common sign that I see is “hair roots” on top of your soil that look like little thin fibers, this is a sure sign that your plant baby needs a new pot and some fresh soil!

Once you’ve figured out that you need to repot your plant you need to get a larger container, fresh soil, water, some fertilizer and your favorite plant expert around! Every plant is different so having someone who knows what they’re doing is KEY! If you’re a DIY kind of person though check this informative article out! —>¬†

Getting your plant out can be a bear, check out this Dracaena Tarzan that we just repotted blow,

Those roots were actually reaching for the water that was below as it was a pot inside a pot, a faux planting. (another post in the future perhaps can elaborate on that)

So anyway all of this to say, repot your plant babies! They grow, they get hungry, they need vitamins & are a therapeutic chore or an asset to be maintained.

“Don’t stick baby in a corner” and forget about her! (The plant is the baby…)

When you have  happy plant, YOU will be happy.
