<h1>Houseplant Care</h1> <p>Hi, I&rsquo;m Jessica. &nbsp;I&rsquo;m an associate at the Scotts Company and I&rsquo;m here today to talk to you about how to repot your houseplant.</p> <p>Houseplants aren&rsquo;t just for your house. &nbsp;They&rsquo;re also a great way to liven up your desk or work space. &nbsp;I like to keep this one at my office, but as you can see, it&rsquo;s kind of outgrown its pot. &nbsp;So today, I&rsquo;m going to talk to you about how to repot your houseplants.</p> <p>Here&rsquo;s what I&rsquo;ll need to repot my plant. &nbsp;I&rsquo;ve decided to use Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix because it will feed my plant for up to six months and has super absorbent core fibres that will help protect against over- and underwatering, so I don&rsquo;t have to worry that my plant is getting too much or too little water.</p> <p>I&rsquo;ve also selected a pot that&rsquo;s about two sizes larger than the current pot that my plant&rsquo;s in, and it&rsquo;s important to make sure that your pot has drainage holes at the bottom. &nbsp;And then since I want to keep this at my desk and I don&rsquo;t want it leaking, I&rsquo;ve also selected one that comes with a saucer that snaps into the bottom like this. &nbsp;And finally, I have my watering can to water my plant after I&rsquo;ve repotted it.</p> <p>So the first thing I&rsquo;m going to do is fill the pot about one-third of the way with the potting mix. &nbsp;Now I&rsquo;m going to remove my plant from its old pot. &nbsp;I want to separate the roots so that they&rsquo;re able to settle in and spread out into the new, larger pot. &nbsp;You can also use a garden knife for this. &nbsp;I&rsquo;m going to place the plant into the new pot and then continue filling with more potting mix, up to about 1 inch below the rim of the pot.</p> <p>After you&rsquo;ve finished filling your pot with the potting mix, you want to lightly pack it down, and now it&rsquo;s time to water. &nbsp;You want to water a newly repotted plant pretty thoroughly so that it&rsquo;s able to settle into the new pot and you want to make sure that the water soaks all the way through the potting mix.</p> <p>And that&rsquo;s it. &nbsp;Now my plant&rsquo;s roots have more room to grow and I can continue to enjoy it at my desk.</p> <div><br /></div>
