Hi @greenelves,


Welcome to Workshop.


You've come to the right place. Resident horticulturalist @Noelle has shared a very helpful step-by-step guide for how to pot a plant.


Note that in Step 1 Noelle advises to be careful when choosing a new pot that you don't want to choose a pot that is too big for your plant. Excess potting mix beyond the roots may turn sour, becoming smelly and also possibly damaging developing root tips.


Let us know if you have any questions following reading the guide.

Re: Potting frangipanis

hi @greenelves frangipanis like very free draining soil, even sand, so make sure your soil is not heavy. Most young plants require staking so, tie it to a stake, to help it along. Not too much water, and maybe shelter against the wind for a few months, to give the plant the best chance to get Re-established good luck 😉
