It wasn’t until I was 16 when I discovered what I wanted to do in my life. It was then when mountains as elder as time crushed me until I realized where was my place in the world. It was like a deafening noise that couldn’t be heard with the ear, but with the soul, whatever that would be. Since then I come back to Nature, to mountains, trees, rocks, forests, storms or the night sky as if it were a drug, to re-awaken that fleeting sensation of being no more than a small, disposable part of something magnificent.

Repotting is a “traumatic experience” for most plants, but if done at the right time and in the right way, it will have a very positive influence in the plant growth and vigour. Sooner or later, all plants require a change of substrate. A simple rule of thumb could be that all plants that are “comfortable” where they are located and growing require repotting every year or two. Some species grow faster than others and the environmental conditions influence as well. It is highly recommendable to investigate the particular biology of our plant and observe how it grows and looks.
