When It’s Time for Repotting Pothos: 3 Signs

The Plant Is Root-Bound

As roots grow within a pot, they spread out, searching for minerals and water to absorb. With time, the roots take up more and more space within the pot and become crowded, limiting the amount of nutrients and water they can access.


The Soil Is Compacted

Another problem you may encounter is that the soil can become compacted, keeping it from having access to water or aeration.
