Taking care of your baby plant
These little plants need a little more love and attention than a mature plant. The baby plants are still small, sensitive and fragile. As with all plants, the location and nutrition is very important for these little ones. Although it differs per plant, there are also similarities in terms of care and attention that they require.
Grow and repot
Ultimately, it is of course the intention that your small baby plant grows into an adult plant. Raising your baby plant takes some time. Depending on the plant and care, your plant will have grown into a young adult plant after about 2 years. The plants can get a real growth spurt, so you have to repot them more often, especially in the beginning. The roots need space to grow and the soil in which they stand also needs to be refreshed every now and then. Therefore, repot the plant every 3 to 4 months to a larger pot: this is how you stimulate the growth process!
