And let the untangling begin! 😮💨 #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #PlantTherapy #PlantCorner #Monstera #MonsteraMob #GregGang #Greggers #RootPorn
I watched a video on repotting and the lady said not to pull the roots out to plant the whole thing in a bigger pot maybe 2 inches larger than the one it came out of.￼
@clairsheart had to otherwise the center of the root ball eventually wouldn’t get any water. If it weren’t severely root bound I wouldn’t have touched the roots. It was pretty solid 🤷🏾♂️ needed to be done and I’d rather do it now while it’s still small because those roots will triple and possibly quadruple in size as it gets bigger. Potted it in a planter 1.5 inches bigger than it was in. Put soil in the bottom of the new pot, then placed the old pot inside the new one, filled it up with soil around the sides, pulled it out, untangled the roots and placed it in the hole and filled it in. I’m pretty confident it will be perfectly fine. I’ve seen videos saying not to untangle but I’ve also seen videos where they’ve said to untangle a bit so the roots won’t keep growing in a circle.
@LauraLynne lol right! I was like WHOA!
So far so good. Not a sign of decline yet 🤗😁
