Replanting Stress: What to do to replant container plant stress

Each plant may need to be replanted as it grows out of its containers once it has grown. Most plants will grow in their new home, but those that are incorrectly transplanted may suffer from stress in the transplanted plant. The leaves may then fall or turn yellow, fail to grow or the plant may wilt. You can care for a plant that suffers from the stress of replanting, but it takes time and care to cure it.

Transplant shock during replanting

When a plant suffers from wilted leaves after transplanting, as well as a number of other symptoms, this is usually due to the way it has been treated during the transplanting process. One of the worst culprits is replanting the plant at the wrong time. Plants are particularly vulnerable just before they begin to flower, so transplanting in the spring should always be avoided.

Other causes of transplant shock by repotting are using a different type of potting soil than the previously living plant, placing the transplanted plant in different lighting conditions after repotting, and even leaving the roots exposed to the air for any period of time during the repotting process.

Stress treatment of replanting plants

What to do in case of pot stress if your plant has already been damaged? The best way to save your plant and help it recover is to give it the best treatment.

  • Make sure the new pot has enough drainage holes. If not, try to drill one or two holes while the plant is still in the pot to avoid moving the plant unnecessarily.
  • Place the plant in the same place where it used to live so that it has the same temperature and lighting conditions as before.
  • Give the plant a dose of water-soluble, multi-purpose plant food.
  • Finally, cut off all dead leaves and stem ends to make room for new parts to grow.
