Q.Overgrown Roots

Zone Calgary, Alberta, Canada | Anonymous added on June 4, 2021 | Answered

Hello! I bought some indoor plants yesterday and just noticed that my Jade plant and Spider plant have their roots growing out of the drainage holes! I have heard it’s not good to re-pot plants too early, so what should I do in this case? Thank you!

Both of those plants actually prefer to be rootbound so there is no hurry to repot them. I would let them get acclimated to their new location a few weeks, then if you need to move them into a nicer container, do so. Only go up about one pot size to avoid overwatering.
