Default Re: Need a large pot ASAP

Sorry to see the folded leaves, Patty.

Was it very root-bound when you removed it from the pot? Big plants I've dealt with didn't have much soil to hold onto water because of being so root-bound so they required lots of frequent watering. When my big Ae Ae would have leaves fold I found that soaking it helped a lot. Just make sure the roots are getting a lot of water but focusing your watering into the center of the pot since it will be a while before the roots expand out into the new soil.

Good luck!

Harvey
