Boosting Baby Victorias To Bigger Pots
Step By Step

By Kit Knotts - Click images to enlarge

We prepare an 8 or 9 ounce cup with holes poked at the base putting one tablespoon of peat in the bottom
We pop the plant out of its 3 ounce cup >
Center it in the larger cup >
And ooze moist sand around it to crown level

 Boosting from 3 ounce to 9 ounce cups


Boosting from 6" to 8" pot, the same procedure as for 9 ounce cup or 4" pots to 6"
We cover the holes in the new pot with newspaper and add a handfull of peat >

Unpot the plant >
Center it in the new pot, oozing moist sand around it >
And press moist sand to crown level
