When to repot
Good morning!<br>So far I've received a calathea rattlesnake, peperomia marble, & a bird's nest fern in pots- How will I know if or when they need a bigger pot?
Nicole - in general, you want to repot, or refresh the soil, most houseplants at lease once a year. Soil nutrition breakdown over time and when that happens, your plants won't have enough nutrition to keep putting out new growths.
If the plants you purchased already came potted (meaning in a ceramic) i think you can safely assume the soil has been changed out already. You can hold off repotting till next year!
