a few months ago i bought everything i needed to re pot my small collection of African violets, but then read that they like to be a little snug in their pots in order to bloom, and you should wait until they are at least 9" across before moving them up a size. well, three of them were ready, and one had a rather beat up pot that i thought was causing it to dry out too quickly, so i decided to just do them all at once.
|definitely ready to move up a size.|
|from a 3" pot to a 4" pot.|
|there are many packaged mixes available (until the day comes where i have room to keep all of the ingredients for various mixes, i buy ready made).|
|this was the guy with the cracked pot, and the dirt sort of pulled away from the sides.|
|the cracked pot guy actually had two little plants in there, and this guy broke off during the transplant. I'm not sure if he is ready to grow on his own, but he did have some roots. I've potted him up and crossed my fingers.|
|one of the larger ones, just starting to be root bound, and ready for a new pot.|
