I have three or four dozen species of houseplants at any given time and it’s inevitably my monsteras that I find myself repotting the most.
These plants like being rootbound, but they grow so quickly and I have so many that it feels like I’m always dividing one or repotting another. One day my husband will come home and find me buried under Swiss cheese plants.
Is your monstera needing a new home, too? This guide will help. Coming up ahead, here’s what we’re going to go over:
Gather your tools, which should include clean scissors or pruners, fresh potting medium, and a clean pot.
When to Repot
If your existing container is cracked, crumbling, clogged, or otherwise compromised, you can repot whenever you want.
If the roots have outgrown the pot and are coming out of the drainage holes, it’s best to wait for late winter or early spring. It won’t hurt your monstera to hang out a little longer unless there is so little soil that absolutely no water can be retained.
During this time the plant is still dormant, so it won’t be as shocked by a move. And with the growing season just round the corner, once growth resumes, it will quickly re-establish itself.
