Properly Repot Poinsettia and Further Care
Once the first blooming period is over, you should transplant the poinsettia. The pots in which they are sold are often too small and should be replaced as soon as possible with larger ones. To commit no error in repoting, use the following helpful tips.
- Pour one day before repotting, so that the soil dissolves better.
- Hold the stem with two fingers gently, cover the remaining soil with the other hand and turn over the plant with pot. Turn the pot from side to side until it dissolves and can be removed. Free the root ball by gently tapping from the old earth and dead roots.
- Put some soil in the new pot and put the poinsettia in the middle of the pot. Make sure that they are about the same amount as before stands. Add all around soil – most easily with an old wooden spoon to press down the soil. It is important that no voids.
- After repotting the poinsettia needs plenty of rest and care to get used to the new soil. Place it in a warm, bright place, but not directly at the sun. Only pour just so much water that it does not dry out. If it forms new shoots, it can care as usual.
- Fertilize after repotting only after 6-8 weeks.
The next repot is usually only after 2-3 years again necessary. The Best time to repot is the end of March to mid April. If the roots are growing out of the pot or unpleasant smell should be repotted the plant switches to penetrate.
