Potting Up!

In this video, Doc shows you the in’s and out’s of transplanting your plants from a smaller container to a larger container. Key points in this video are: Be sure to start the transplanting (potting up) process before your roots begin to grow in circles at the bottom of your pot. If they do, gently try to pull them apart and out of their formation. As a last resort, you can carefully trim up the roots. Also, be sure to pack in the new soil very well. This will remove any air pockets; and roots HATE air pockets. Once potted up, be sure to feed your plants with plenty of water as it has been a tough day for that plant. This will start the process of this plant getting familiar with it’s new home.
