Do you have houseplants that are in old soil exhausted of nutrients? or maybe they have roots coming out the bottom? Well, it may be time to repot those plants and give them a little room to grow. :) I know I had some plants that were in need, so that what we did this weekend--repotted some of our houseplants. Spring is the perfect time to repot your plants--right before their summer burst of growth.
Now, a word of caution: if it isn't broken, don't fix it! If your plants are fine, there is no reason to repot them and it may actually hurt them to do so. For me, I was repotting because one of my plant's pot was growing mold and stank--not cool. The other pot was disintegrating. In both cases, since it was the pot that was the problem, I put them in a same-sized pot. If you have roots coming out the bottom of your pot, then you'll want to put your plant in a slightly larger pot, but too large of a pot will result in the plant focusing its growth on the roots rather than the foilage.
So, let's get to business.
Gather your supplies:
plants to repotted
root-start solution (if desired. just follow instructions on the container.)
(plastic Easter eggs and cute little girl optional!)
Loosen the plant from it's old pot.
Put in new pot.
Same thing with this one.
