Why, When, and How: The Best Time to Repot Your Plants

First things first. The best time to repot? When your plant starts to look a bit down in the dumps.

Repotting comes naturally and, trust me, your plant will thank you!

Let the fun begin! Our step-by-step instructions make repotting a breeze. Just imagine you’re baking – but instead of flour and sugar, we’re using soil and love!

  1. Step 1: Prep your new pot. If it doesn’t drain well, add some handy pebbles to the bottom.
  2. Step 2: Use a Monstera-approved potting mix. Remember, your plants want to feel cozy, not crammed!
  3. Step 3: Say ‘hello’ to your plant’s roots. Take your plant out of its pot gently and loosen those tendrilled toes.
  4. Step 4: Nestle your plant into its new home, adding more soil on top as needed.
  5. Step 5: Give your newly repotted friend a nice drink, then place it in its favorite sunny spot – with an added boast of confidence!

Is it Time to Repot?

Before we begin, let’s understand the signs that indicate it’s time for a new pot. If you see your plant roots protruding out of the pot’s drainage hole or if your plant is wilting too soon after watering, it’s a sign that your plant is in need of more space. However, make sure you’re not mistaking normal dehydration for the need to repot.

What You’ll Need

First off, you’ll need a great potting mix. We suggest using the Pot Gold Premium Potting Soil for indoor plants. Some other materials you’ll need are a watering can, a disinfected garden trowel and of course, a new pot which is larger in size.

Selecting the Right Pot

Remember, size matters! Your new pot should be larger than your current one, but don’t go too extreme. The ideal rule is to upsize by either 1 or 2 inches in diameter. The brand Smooth Clay, offers a delightful range of pots suitable for different plant types.

The Repotting Process

The process might initially sound complex but intimidating it isn’t, trust me! It’s as simple as removing your plant, cleaning its roots, adding a base layer of soil in the new pot, placing your plant, and adding more soil to cover. Don’t forget to water thoroughly afterward.
