When To Repot Plants | Park & Plaza

You probably don’t want to repot a plant right after you get it. If you just got a new plant that’s still in the container it came in, the experts agree you should give it a few days or even weeks to acclimate to your home before transferring it to a different planter.

You may be interested in putting your plant into a stylish new planter that matches your decor. But one of the biggest reasons you would want to repot a plant is to give it fresh soil.

“Repotting your plant does not necessarily mean changing a plant’s current planter, but rather, changing its soil or potting mix because fresh soil means new nutrients.”

Another reason you might want to repot a plant? If it has grown too big for its current pot-i.e., it’s root-bound. If the plant’s roots have taken up all of the space and begun growing through the bottom of the pot, it’s time for a new home.

There are a few symptoms of root-bound and pot-bound plants to look out for: the roots are peeking out from the drainage holes, the plant can easily be lifted or fall out of the pot, you see more roots than soil, the plant dries out faster than usual, or it’s been over a year since the plant was last repotted.

“Repotting is a stressful time for a plant, so try not to do it too often.” 

“Let the plant speak to you. It will tell you when it’s ready for a new home.”
