When to Re-Pot

This is one of the most common questions we get, “How long until I need to replant this?” In most cases plants actually like to be a little root bound and actually do better in a smaller container; we have always gone with the rule of thumb the old school growers used. Re Potting is not necessary until the roots actually break the pot. Of course there are a few exceptions to this rule but for the majority of the plants we carry, unless it is getting difficult to water, just wait until the roots are spilling out of the original container.
