How to transplant a money tree?
The people have a belief that if a house plant grows like a money tree (the scientific name is Crassula), then this plant will attract financial security and prosperity to this house. Therefore, many housewives have this plant at home. But, like every plant, Crassula requires its own conditions. Moreover, upon reaching a certain size, it must be replanted. The article will discuss how to transplant a money tree.
When to transfer
Crassula will need to be transplanted in such cases: after it was bought and when it reaches a certain size, or rather the pot in which it grows, has become too small. Despite the growth rate of the money tree, it can be transplanted no more than once every two years. As for the first case, the money tree, like other plants, is sold in transporting pots that are unsuitable for long-term use.
How to transplant money tree
So, for transplanting, we need to take a low, but wide pot, as well as a universal soil mixture or a mixture in which cacti are planted. Why the pot should be wide. The fact is that the roots of the money tree grow close to the surface of the soil, and grow to the sides to ensure greater stability. As for the soil in which we are going to replant the money tree, we take the mixtures mentioned above, and also do a few centimeters at the bottom of the pot drainage. Drainage will absorb moisture and so protect the Crassula roots from rotting.
In order to learn how to properly transplant a money tree, you need to familiarize yourself with the following instructions. You make a drainage at the bottom of a wide pot, and without separating the old soil from the roots you rearrange our plant in a new pot. After that we fill the prepared mixtures. There is another caveat: you need to be very careful in transplanting, because the leaves break off easily. After that, you transplanted the money tree, but you still need to stick. To do this, do not overdo it with water, that is, do not over-wet the plant, and protect it from sunlight.
