But do not just pick up a volume pot: he must be more than the previous diameter of only 2 centimeters.
If you put the plant directly into the large container, it will not grow as long as the roots are not mastered the entire container.
5. When transplanting, use flower loose, light earth. If the roots will stagnate water, they can marvel fungal diseases.
