When a plant suffers from wilted leaves after repotting, along with a host of other symptoms, it’s usually caused by the way it was treated during the transplant process. … Plants are especially vulnerable right before they begin to bloom, so always avoid transplanting in the spring.
When should I move my plants to bigger pots?
It’s best to repot in spring, before your plant goes into its main growing phase. You’ll need a plastic pot (make sure it has drainage holes in the bottom), the correct type of soil mix for your plant, some drainage material, clean scissors and gloves – if you don’t want to get your hands dirty.
When should you repot African violets?
African violets should be repotted about twice a year, or every 5-6 months. One mature, this simply means repotting the plant with some fresh soil, into the same size pot.
Do you water after repotting?
Water heavily, drench them, right after you repot. The water on the surface will evaporate relatively quickly, but moisture will still be trapped in the deeper soil… so that’s where the roots will do. You’ll be encouraging deep, healthy roots that anchor the plant AND provide it more access to water and nutrients.
Is it OK to repot during flowering?
Make sure you repot your cannabis plant shortly before switching it to flowering. The reason for this is because you should avoid shocking a cannabis plant during flowering at all costs. Repotting a cannabis plant during flowering will stunt it and can be very detrimental to your harvest.
How long after repotting can I flower?
I would give it at least 2 weeks between the two events, since too much going on at once is pretty stressful, and the plant is going to need some time to grow new and expanded roots. Since things usually stall a little after transplanting, I’d wait until they are growing robustly again before turning the light back.
