Let's Repot a Succulent





 2701

As we all know most plants will eventually get root bound when grown in a garden planter.  As a plant grows it's roots want to shoot out and expand.  Eventually they will become intertwined, yearning to break free.  Here are a few tips to help with succulents.

Turn the succulent over in your hand and gently loosen from the pot that it is root bound in.  Carefully try to spread the roots a bit so that they are moveable and not bound together in a tight ball. Take the potting soil for the new larger planter and mix it with 1/3 sand. Succulents are desert dwellers so good draining soil is a must.

Once the succulents have been re-potted do NOT water.  Wait a week before the first watering.  This will give them time to adjust to the new pot and soil.  Then water like once a month.  It's tempting to over water but trust us they do not like it.  Just make sure that the pot is placed in an area where there is lots of sunshine.  If indoors put them on a windowsill.  Outside move to a sunny area. 

The main goal here is to let them have lots of room to grow, don't over water and place in a sunny window or area.  Sounds simple so let us know how you do!
