There has been a reader request for "how to repot houseplants" from [personal profile] syntaxofthings and a couple other people have also expressed interest, so I shall dive into gardening posts here.

In my experience, when you get a houseplant from a nursery you are probably going to need to repot it because they are usually "potbound." this means the pot is too small for the plant's roots. you can tell if a plant is potbound by looking at the bottom of the container. if you see roots sticking out, then you need to repot the plant. (if you want a healthier plant from a nursery, check for one with less roots gasping for space.)
