Prepare your plants before the move
Before moving, it’s important to prepare your plants properly. The first step is to choose the right moving day. Plants move better if their leaves aren’t wet, and if the weather isn’t too hot or too cold. They also need to be thoroughly cleaned and inspected to remove any traces of disease, pests, or other parasites. Pruning the branches is also recommended to facilitate packing and transport, and it’s important to prune the roots of the plants so that they adapt to their new environment more easily. Once this has been done, it’s time to choose a container suited to the size and shape of your plant.
Use the right equipment for transport
Transporting a plant is a delicate task, and it’s important to ensure that the necessary equipment is available before you start. To transport plants successfully, you’ll need to obtain a suitable container. You’ll also need to ensure that the container is large enough to hold the plant and that it’s filled with packing materials such as tissue paper, newspaper, or bubble wrap. It’s also important to use absorbent paper, such as paper towels or foam, to protect the plant from movement in the container. Once the plant is safely in the container, you’ll need to surround it with additional packing materials to prevent it from moving around too much during the move.
Keep the plant well-hydrated during the move
When transporting plants, you need to take precautions to ensure they don’t suffer any trauma and remain in good health. To achieve this, it’s important to ensure that the plant is well-hydrated during the move, so plan ahead for the time you’ll have to transport the plant and make sure it’s well hydrated. We recommend :
- water plants before moving,
- place pots in an airtight plastic bag,
- add a little water to the bag before closing it hermetically.
During the journey, make sure the soil is not completely dry, and check the humidity of the bag regularly. If necessary, adding a little water can also be a good idea. The key is to be constant and vigilant so that the plant doesn’t run out of water during the move.
Care for the plant after the move
Once your plant has arrived safely, take the time to rehydrate it. Water it abundantly with non-calcareous water and wait for it to stabilize. It’s important to keep a close eye on the plant’s condition to make sure it’s acclimatizing well to its new environment, and you may need to find a new location for it and adjust the watering parameters. If you notice any signs of stress, make changes to its maintenance routine and provide additional nutrients. Proper fertilization can help promote better health, and it’s also very important to check for parasites that have appeared during transport. Use an organic product or natural treatment to eliminate any pests that are likely to damage the plant. Don’t take any chances and consult a professional if your plant doesn’t seem to respond to the products you apply. Continue to observe your plant regularly, especially during the first few weeks after moving. Follow its needs closely and adapt your maintenance routine accordingly to help it recover more quickly. If you take the right precautions, your plant will soon adapt to its new home. Ultimately, moving your plants can be a daunting task, but with the right homemade tips, you could succeed. It’s important to take your time and prepare well for moving plants to avoid any unnecessary damage or stress. Be sure to check the weather and provide your plants with sufficient water and light so they can adapt to their new home as easily as possible.
