Spring House(plant) Cleaning

Spring House(plant) Cleaning

in Houseplants, Seasonal To-Dos | 0 comments

Spring is the ideal time to repot and groom your houseplants. Start with new pots (or ones that have been sterilized with a solution of bleach and water), and a bag of potting soil, preferably a brand that includes perlite and some nutrients.

  • Increase the pot size by one to two inches.
  • Pick off all dead or brown leaves. Trim up any spouts to shape the plant.
  • Gently remove the plant’s root ball from the existing pot. If it appears to be root-bound, break up the root ball a bit before transplanting to a new pot.
  • Once the plant has been repotted, water it well and let it drain.

Then put the plant on a regular feeding schedule, using a weak solution of liquid fertilizer. I prefer Drammatic O – organic liquid fish fertilizer for houseplants; read the label instructions for the proportions.
