Houseplant Care 101: Repotting
A common question that comes up in the shop:
How do you know when a plant needs to be repotted?
When the roots are coming out of the bottom of the nursery pot's drainage holes, it's time. If that hasn't happened but you have a hunch that a larger pot is needed, try this test: pop the plant out of its pot and if you see lots of roots circling the pot, that means that it's root-bound and, yes, time to repot!
While it can be tempting to repot your new plant right when you get it home, it's best to wait a few weeks first. Both relocating and repotting are stressful for the plant, so be kind to it and let it acclimate to its new home before repotting.
