3 Things to Do Now
- Repot. Spring is the best time to repot most plants because they’re starting their most vigorous time of growth. If roots are growing out of the container’s drainage holes, give them a bit more space. Follow these steps for repotting house plants.
- Tidy up. Cut off any dead leaves or flowers. Clean dust off leaves to give plants the light they need for photosynthesis.
- Feed your plant. Increased daylight will make indoor plants grow faster. If you stopped fertilizing your plants for the winter, it’s time to start again.
