Transferring Plants to New Pots

One of the biggest projects that I’ve been far to lazy and forgetful to accomplish has been transferring this aloe plant from it’s starting pot into this sweet GROW pot I bought at Target maybe a year or two ago. The plant isn’t as old as the pot, I’d like to just point that out. I realize that transferring plants to new pots should be done somewhat immediately but, for whatever the reason, I just couldn’t get myself to do it. I blame it on the move.

Yesterday, I finally took the leap and headed to my local Lowe’s for some soil and rocks to set this baby straight. I don’t have much of a green thumb, but I do know that since my pot doesn’t have holes at the bottom I needed to put a layer of rocks to help with draining. I also made sure to get soil meant for succulents and such for added measure. I have 3 other planting projects lined up involving succulents so the bag size will totally be worth it!

I used all red rocks at the bottom since I knew I was going to be using them for any of my planting projects at surface level. Then, I placed the dirt and the plant. After patting the dirt down and watering it just a little, I laid down most of the white/lightly colored rocks on top. Mr. Ducky super approves of his newly rejuvenated window sill mate!

I can’t wait to take all the succulent plants and clippings my mom gave me and place them in their new homes!
