How to use:


  1. Choose a suitable pot and place a few pebbles at the base to ensure proper drainage of the water.
  2. Then pour a layer of substrate and prepare a hole to place the new plant.
  3. Carefully remove the plant from the old pot and gently clean the old substrate from the roots.
  4. Place the plant in the new pot, cover the roots with the substrate and press lightly and evenly around the plant. Then water the plant slowly and moderately.

Repeat watering in 7 days. If necessary, add another layer of substrate. Allow the substrate to settle naturally in the pots and the roots to adapt to the new environment. After 7 days, watering resumes normally. No fertilisation is required for a period of 6 months.
