As summer approaches and the days last longer, your indoor plants will have more access to sunlight and as a result, the plants will grow and the roots will spread more and more. As they do so, they will begin to require more water, more nutrition, and more space to thrive in. That’s why it’s the perfect time to repot your indoor plants!
A little bit of work now can ensure optimal health for your plants as they continue to grow. There are actually a number of benefits that your plants will reap from being repotted.
Plants, like people, require nutrition to grow and thrive. Plants tend to derive most of their nutrients from the soil in which they grow. As they do so, they will eventually deplete the soil of nutrients and leave it less rich than it was before. Repotting will allow your houseplants access to new, nutrient-rich soil and help optimize their future health.
Even if you don’t repot your indoor plants, occasionally changing out the soil can be extremely beneficial to their overall health. If that isn’t an option, you can also place a fresh layer of soil over the top of the soil that is already in place. Even that small amount of soil will help provide additional life-giving nutrients that will boost your plant’s overall health and appearance.
