Some houseplants proved worthy of windowsill space and have been brought inside for the Autumn/Winter. Some were thrown to the compost heap. There is just a little space left for a new houseplant or two. Agaves piqued my interest at a recent flower show so I took the plunge and ordered one from Logees.
Arriving a week ago, the directions suggested repotting the plant from its 4″ plastic container to a slightly larger clay pot, after a few days of acclimation in the home.
Added an inch of soil on the bottom, wrapped the sharp edges of the plant to gently slide it out of the old container and into the new. Added soil along the sides, gently tapped the pot to settle, and then placed in the sink to water well, allowing excess water to run through the bottom.
