a question about repotting
Hi all. I have been trying to look up on how to repot my Spider Plant. I actually know how to repot her, but I have 2 questions about it anyway. She is very big right now. I don't think she needs a bigger pot right now, But I kinda wanted to put her in new soil.
I am going to wait till May-June to do it. My question is, how do I get all the old soil off the roots so she can have new soil? The soil she is in now doesn't drain too well.. always wet on the bottom. (yes, the pot has holes)
Question 2, she is 2 plants in one, is it possible to separate the 2 plants? or would the roots be too damaged if I did that. I don't even know if I want to attempt that tho. I was just wondering if it could work like that.
She is so big, I am proud of her and terrified at the same time. I have never repotted a plant this big before. Maybe by the time I want to do it, I won't be so afraid.
Oh-- and she hates tap water! Watered her with tap, she doesn't wilt or anything, but give her distilled or filtered?? she stands up so straight and tall and the Bonnie in her gets really curly,, something she doesn't do with tap. Just my observation is all-- :) I guess mine is just picky. And it isn't just me that has noticed, daughter and husband too. Just in case you thought it was a "Marjie thing" lol.
I envy those of you that can use tap water all the time and have your plants happy.. :)
ok.. off track of my questions. How to get all the old soil off roots.. and can they be separated..
Thanks in advance :)
