How and Why to Repot Your Plants in Spring

As the weather warms up, plants will start putting on new growth and may need extra space. Repotting is an important component in caring for your plants and allowing them to flourish, and spring is the perfect time to do so! Plants should be repotted every 12 – 18 months depending on the species, excluding slow growing plants like cacti and succulents. Repotting your plants doesn’t necessarily mean you have to change your pot size but replacing the old soil will replenish nutrients available to feed your plants. 

Indicators your plant needs to be repotted include:

  • Roots are growing through the bottom drainage holes
  • Growth has slowed down in growing season or stopped
  • Plant dries out quicker and needs watering more frequently
  • Plant is top heavy and falls over easily
