Hi, I found a really nice ceramic pot to put my Rope hoya in, drilled holes in it today. The pot it is in now seems to be too small, I can't even put my finger in it to see how wet/dry the soil is. The plant itself is only 6" tall, so it is still a baby.
My question is- do they like to be root-bound some? the pot I want to put it in is 2" larger (at the base)and 1" taller than the one it is in now. And since they are slow growers, it should work for a while. I've read here that they dont like to be messed with re-potting a lot,so I am hoping this pot will give it what it needs. (plus-- I like it :))
plus- the soil has food in it already (MG) should I feed it reg plant food when I do re-pot it? Should I re-pot now? or way a few weeks? Like I said, I can't get my finger in it to feel the soil. Oh and I've read that watering from the bottom is better, is this right?
I really love this new member of my family and want to do good by it.
Thanks for any advice in advance :)
