Q.Why isn’t my new repotted swiss cheese plant growing?

Zone Bayfield, CO 81122 | Anonymous added on November 12, 2016 | Answered

I have a swiss cheese plant at home. It is about 3 years old now. Last spring I repotted it and split the plant. Before repotting, the plant grew rapidly-shooting out new larger leaves often in the spring and summer. Since repotting it has only one new very small leaf. Also, some of the leaves have turned yellow. I put the main plant back in the same spot. The other half I have placed in an another location. I didn’t change watering or fertilizing habits. Can you help me figure out why either plant doesn’t seem happy in its new bigger roomier pot?

Yellowing leaves generally indicate a watering issue, to much or to little. Check the soil to make sure it is moist but not soggy. The pot should be well draining.
If you reduced the roots in the pot but have not decreased watering, they may be overwhelmed with moisture.
