Planting And Transplanting Houseplants
Transplantation – a rather important procedure. It is essential for healthy growth of your plants. The best time to transplant – spring, just before the summer abundant growth of plants. Here are some signs that say that plant to replant: – roots climbs from the base of the pot – the plant ceases to grow and fade – the roots of plants are limited and can not grow and if you've decided to repot the plant, follow these steps: 1) Removing plants from the pot. Lightly sprinkle the plant, let the soil dry for one hour, then carefully remove the plant from the pot. You can do this by turning the pot and gently shake it. Just do not pull plant by the stem, or you can just leave it without a root.
2) Preparation of the root tuber. Gently untangle the root tuber, using a fork or other convenient object. Just do it carefully not to damage the root. Remove the dried and rotted roots. If you want to, plant growth has slowed, remove about a quarter of the mass of the entire root. 3) Preparation of a new pot.
Do not re-pot the plant in a large pot, compared with the former, otherwise the plant will slow down growth. It is better to use plastic or ceramic pots. Before you fill the earth, it is recommended to put at the bottom of the shingle, or other drainage. 4) Transplant. Carefully place the plant in new pot and fill the cavity of land or fertilizer. Do not plant too deeply sadite, it could lead to his death. Sadite at the same depth as in the same pot. 5) Water. Watering after planting is needed. Watering should be abundant, so that after watering holes from the drain water came out. Immediately after the transplant should not feed the plant, it can cause damage to it.
