    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.
    • Server Upgrade Tonight 2/21 10pm EST   02/20/2017

      Sometime around 10pm EST tonight our server will be off line for an update. The time it takes to get back up will depend on your location, but should be less than a day.  

repotting seedlings

9 posts in this topic

I have these little areca vestiaria growing in 50,50,100mm seedling planters, there are one or two little roots coming out of the bottom.

My question is when do you repot into bigger pot?,when roots are compacted the bottom? They are around 4 months old from germination. Also what size pot should one go to?

Kind regards knowledgeable members

These are not ready to be repotted by far. They're just starting. It's to repot them when the roots have formed a somewhat compact clump inside the pot. I think you should wait at least a year, probably longer.
Nice looking seedlings though!

I think another good idea is to push the roots inside , when you see them coming out of the holes , if possible...

also using Leca at the bottom of the pot ( as @Pal Meir Pal sugestion) from the first place to prevent roots coming out of the pot...
