Re-potting of plants becomes essential when the plant outgrows the pot that it was growing in. The pots that needs to be re-potted can be identified by observing the following:
If water stands on the surface of the pot after watering. This means that the potting mixture has become hard and it is difficult for the roots to spread easily.
If the root is coming out of the seepage hole of the pot.
If the leaves are withering.
If there is no spurt of new shoots.
If the plant is blooming less.
It is always good to re-pot during the growing season that is just on the onset of the rainy season or during the rainy season. Avoid re-potting during winter, which is the resting season for plants. Always choose a pot, which is bigger than the one that the plant was formerly potted in. Remove the plant from the old pot carefully and shake off the excess mud stuck to the roots. Follow the steps below for re-potting.
