Repotting a China Doll Plant

Anonymous added on September 16, 2012 | Answered

I would like to repot the China Doll plant I recently purchased into a more attractive planter but have been told that repotting these plants can cause the plant to drop its leaves. Do you have any suggestions?

They don't like change of any kind, so it is better to keep them rootbound than to repot. Only repot when absolutely necessary.

It's easy to solve the ugly grow pot problem without repotting -- just get an attractive container large enough to accommodate your plant in its grow pot, along with a plastic liner for it to sit in inside the decorative container. The decorative container should be waterproof, i.e. no drainage holes. This is called double potting, and is what interior landscape professionals generally do.
