Variegated Monstera Propagation Part Three: Repotting
Variegated Monstera Propagation Part 3: Repotting
This is part three of a growth story of a Variegated Monstera which has been grown from a single leaf cutting. If you haven’t seen the first posts, you might want to see part one here and part two here.
After a year and half of growth in a self watering pot, this plant has grown from a single leaf cutting into a significant maturing plant. The roots had grown significantly, and were actually growing through the drainage container. It was was time for this plant to be repotted. It’s really important to get a self watering pot that isn’t too expensive, because you might need to cut it up (like I had to for this one) in order to not damage the roots of the plant.
Tips when repotting into a self watering pot
Self watering pots work a little differently to normal ones, and there is a risk that your soil could stay too wet, which would mean that your plant wouldn’t get a chance to breathe. Without drying out occasionally, the plant could get root rot and die. To ensure that this doesn’t happen I chose to mix in some orchid planting mix which is larger and creates more space for air in the soil.
