What you’ll need
1
Plant That’s Outgrown its Pot
1
Trowel
1 of each
New Pot & Saucer
1
Shard of Pottery or a Stone
Just enough
Organic Potting Mix
Assess the size of the plant’s root ball. Choose a pot 2” wider in diameter and slightly deeper.
1
Place the shard over the drain hole, then add potting mix up to about 1/4 of the depth of the pot.
2
Place the root ball in the new pot and adjust soil depth - if too high, remove some of the new soil.
3
Tease out the old roots with the tips of your fingers to promote new growth. Place back in the pot.
4
Fill in around the edges of the old soil with fresh potting mix up to 1/4” from the pot’s lip.
5
Water the soil to allow it to settle in (top up with more soil if needed).
6
Tip: If you’re moving your plant from outdoors to in, spray it down with neem oil to deter critters.
