When to repot houseplants


If your plant’s roots are circling and trying to escape through the drainage holes… take the hint! Roots should be within soil, not surrounding it; your plant has outgrown its home and is ready to upsize into a bigger pot. Even without this telltale signal, your plant will need to be repotted every year or two with spanking new soil for a nutrient boost. Try to do this in the spring.
