Why do pots have holes?
Pots have holes so excess water can drain through them and prevent roots from getting waterlogged. Thus, we can prevent the appearance of harmful fungi and bacteria for our plants.
If your pot is simply decorative and does not have a hole, clean it frequently and make sure that the water does not stagnate at the bottom. On the contrary, if your pot is used to contain the substrate, check that it has a hole and that it performs the drainage function.
Why change a plant's pot?
The roots are the base of our plant. Through them you will obtain all the nutrients you need to perform their physiological processes.
Therefore, the roots must always be well aerated and have enough space to grow. When we detect that the roots have covered the full capacity of the pot, it will be the right time to repot a plant. Normally we will have to do it every 2 years.
We also recommend that if you have watered your plant excessively, transplant it using a new substrate to avoid proliferation of fungi.
