  • Used dryer sheet

  • Small shovel or your hands

  • Water

Step by Step:

1. Begin by selecting a pot that is 2 inches bigger than the current.

2. If the pot has a drainage whole add a used dryer sheet to the bottom of the new pot. This will prevent soil from coming out of the drainage holes.

3. Next, add a layer of fresh new soil to the new pot however, make sure to leave enough space for the plant.

4. After that prepare the plant by turning the plant sideways and squeezing the plastic pot.

6. Thoroughly water the plant until water comes out of the drainage holes and you are done!
