To promote continued growth and root health, it’s important to know how and when to re-pot your plants. The average healthy houseplant will outgrow its container and need to be re-potted at least once in its lifetime.
How do I know if I need to re-pot?
Check for roots creeping up along the top of the soil, or seeing roots growing through the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. This is a sign that your plant is root-bound and needs more space.
Another indication when it is time to re-pot if when watering your plants the water rushes through the pot and out the drainage hole. This shows the roots are taking up too much room in the current pot and there is not enough soil to root ratio.
