i have a plant that is in a 8 inch pot and the plant is about a foot high,the soil that it is in is very questionable and want to transplant it into another bigger pot with new soil.How much of the old soil can i break away from the roots with out hurting it,because i want these roots to hit the new soil.and sould i add anything to help the plant with the transplant?

Hey whats up. Recently a trasnplant was done all I did was take it out of it's old pot and toss it into a 3 gallon pot with the new soil. Within hours I could tell that it was already liking it's new home. Within days it started growing again faster and better then when in the little pot. All that was done was taken out, put into new soil and then watered. Just be careful taking it out, if your pot is akward you will be tempted to pull it by the stem to try and free it:eek:. I almost smashed it off the ground in a rage trying to free it:D.


Hope this helps.
