What is the best time of day to repot plants? Best time of day to transplant is early in the morning, late in the afternoon or on a cloudy day. This will allow the plants to settle in out of direct sunlight.
Is there a bad time to repot plants?
Winter is a great time to repot houseplants. Plants like to be potted up into larger pots as they grow. If they are spiraling around the rootball, it is time to re-pot your plant. Many indoor plants prefer repotting before the new growing season, which is another reason to do it now before the spring season.
Why transplanting is done in cool hours?
Transplanting should always be done in the evening hours so that plants may establish in the cool weather at night and may recover from the shock of transplanting before the sun comes up next morning. In a cloudy weather and when there is drizzling, transplanting may be done at any time.
Can I repot at night?
The best time of day to repot is when you're in a good mood and have some time to yourself. That's why plants that wilt during the day often perk up in the evening. So, when you remove roots during a repotting (as opposed to potting up), it's (very) slightly easier on the plant if you do it late in the day.
