Transplanting Tips - Indoor Plants
Transplanting Tips - Indoor Plants
Has your plant become too large for its pot? Need a little project to relieve your "Winter Garden Fever"? Winter is a good time to transplant indoor plants.
  1. Use a sharp knife to loosen around the edges of the pot.
  2. Gently remove your plant.
  3. Prune any dead or damaged roots from the plant.
  4. Choose a new pot 1"-2" larger in diameter than the former pot.
  5. Add some form of drainage to the bottom of the pot - e.g., gravel or rocks.
  6. Add several inches of new sterile potting soil to the bottom of the pot.
  7. Place your plant into the pot and fill in around with soil to the rim of the pot and tap down.
  8. Gently add warm water until it runs out the bottom of the pot.
  9. Place your plant in a low-light vicinity for a week or so to give it a chance to readjust before moving it to its former location.
  10. Start adding a liquid organic fertilizer again in several weeks.
