How to transplant plants – Ideas for gardens and decoration

Good morning friends! In today's space we talk about how to transplant your indoor plants.

If you have indoor plants and you know that it is time to transplant them, here are some tips for

Winter can be difficult for gardeners and it can also be hard for houseplants. It is worth dedicating this time to indoor plants and take the opportunity to transplant them and give them a little attention while waiting to return to the garden.

Every two years or so it is convenient to change the pot to indoor plants. Start by buying a good bag of substrate that we can mix with vermiculite or perlite that will help the substrate retain more water. It is also interesting that it contains sphagnum moss or peat moss for the same purpose.

We cover the work area with a sheet or large plastic so as not to stain the house too much. Put the substrate on a tray or bucket and add some warm water, the water should be at room temperature. Mix with your hands so that the substrate is spongy.

Then take the plant that is going to transplant and loosen the soil of the pot with a knife, invert the plant and when you have the root ball in hand inspect the roots well. You must eliminate with scissors all those that do not have a healthy appearance.

Healthy roots are generally light in color and meaty in appearance. If the plant is too large for our taste we can trim those weakest parts and leave only the strongest and healthiest.

We can return the plant to the same pot it was in if we see that it does not require a transplant after the review of its roots.

Although before we can use to clean the pot of mineral deposits and even clean it with a disinfectant to ensure that our plant will continue to grow healthy. We will fill the possible holes with substrate and water with water at room temperature, the room is understood.

We will place the transplanted or removed plants and replant them in their pot in direct sunlight for at least one week. And for at least two weeks we will not fertilize these plants. We have to give them time to recover from the small trauma that the transplant has caused them.
