There is no question that will equal parts tenderness and caution, you can give your houseplants the room that they need to thrive. In some cases, transplanting gives you a chance to divide some plants so that you can have a twin plant to bring to the office or to give away as a gift!

Chad takes four different plants with different needs and demonstrates how to ensure that your transplanting adventures create the best possible opportunity to avoid root-bound plants, poor drainage, and to end up with a healthy, great-looking green buddy.
