Determining the best time to repot your plant

It is best to put your plant in a larger pot immediately after purchase; this is best done because most plants are actually in a pot that is too small, as this reduces transport costs and, for example, increases growth in the case of palms. If you have owned the plant for some time, it is best to repot your plant when the pot has become too small, as can be seen by taking the plant out of its original pot and checking whether the roots are 'rooted', i.e. that they have started to take up the entire pot space.

Houseplants

The best time to repot your houseplant is in spring, when the plant will have more energy due to the number of hours of sunshine. The plant will then quickly start producing new roots. If you want to re-pot your houseplant in winter, you can do so too, but be very careful not to damage the roots.

Garden plants

The best time to repot your garden plant is also in spring, around April. It is of course also possible to put the plant in the garden later in the year, but make sure that it receives a little more water during hot summer days, so that it cannot dry out.

The advantages of repotting

The advantages of repotting are mainly that it stimulates growth, gives the plant a larger water buffer and therefore dries out less quickly. It also gives the plant new nutrients and makes it look better. The most important thing is that it prevents the plant from suffocating, because the roots can no longer move.

It also looks much nicer to put your newly purchased palm in a beautiful pot, because culture pots are purely functional, and therefore not well made...

Each plant has a pot to go with it

A proper ornamental pot makes the plant stand out and completes the picture. A pot can be chosen on the basis of the interior, but also on the basis of a colour. The right pot is just as important as the right plant, and a car with ugly wheels doesn't look good because the picture isn't complete, so the plant won't be complete without the right ornamental pot either.

Plants stay beautiful longer by repotting them

Houseplants stay beautiful longer when you repot them. This is mainly because they get a larger water buffer, which means that if the plant gets too little water, it can use the rest of the soil. You therefore need to water the plant less often.

Prevent root rot

By repotting your houseplant more often, you prevent root rot, because plants do not like to sit with wet feet. A longer period of wet feet can cause root rot, which is immediately solved when you put the plant in a larger pot, because of the larger water buffer. However, it is still the case that there should be no pool of water in the pot.

More nutrients for the plant

By repotting your garden plant, you will immediately give it new nutrition by adding new soil, which will result in better leaf growth. We recommend Mediterranean soil for palms, olive trees, fig trees and other Mediterranean plants, for example, we recommend using high-quality indoor plants for nutrition, such as those from Florentus. This will do your plant very well and it will reward you for it.

Root asphyxiation

Because most plants from the nursery are in a pot that is too small, it is important to prevent root suffocation by repotting the plant, using new potting soil. This is because the new potting soil is much more airy than the older soil.

Repotting will improve the health of your plant.
