6 Signs That It's Time to Repot Your Plant
- The above-ground part of the plant has grown significantly since the last repotting, and plant roots can be seen coming through the drainage holes;
- The plant has stopped growing at a time when it should be actively growing
- Leaves and flowers are shrinking despite regular fertilizing;
- The plant grows at such an angle that the surface soil is raised above the pot.
- The root system of rooted cuttings completely fills the ball of soil. Cuttings should be rooted in transparent containers which allow observation of the root system so they can be transplanted to larger flower pots at the appropriate time.
- At the first signs of water logging and/or overcooling of plants.
We love our plants and care about their health. But not all of us are experienced florists and we often miss the moment when our plant wants to move to a more comfortable planter. The growth rate and volume of root systems differ for many types of plants, so it is important to consider this when choosing the next pot. There are several signs that the old planter is already small and your plant needs a larger size. Such a signal should not be missed, sometimes it can lead to the death of the plant. If you notice the following signs, then it's time to get a larger and more comfortable pot for your green friend.
