Transplanting Tips

Transplanting can be a traumatic experience for your plants. The key to the plants survival is to duplicate its existing environment in its new home.

Gently remove the plant and keep the root ball intact with as much soil around the base as possible. Dig a hole at least two times larger than the root ball and create a soil mound in the center of the hole. Fill the hole with water and help it settle.

To help encourage a strong root system, add a scoop of transplant fertilizer of other amendments. Place the plan into the hotel and replace the soil. Tap the soil gently but firmly around the roots and plant. There should be small spaces in the soil to allow for air and water.

Make sure the plan has light and continue with the regular watering schedule for several weeks.

Try to avoid transplanting during harsh climate changes such as extreme heat, frost, etc.
