Directions Directions

Houseplants require re-potting every 1-2 years depending on the variety. Plants will eventually become root bound and roots may protrude through the drainage holes in the bottom of the pot.

  1. First water the plant well and allow to drain.
  2. Choose a pot larger than the old one both in diameter and in depth, ensuring it has adequate drainage holes.
  3. Place a layer of potting mix in the base of the new pot and gently remove the plant from its old pot holding it carefully close to the base.
  4. Place the plant on top of the layer of potting mix in the new pot, ensuring the root ball is slightly below the rim of the new pot.
  5. Fill in with potting mix around the root ball, gently tapping the pot to ensure all gaps are filled.
  6. Water well and leave to drain.
