Potting Up Made Easy
Dracaena 'Lemon Lime'
Planting a container is a dirty business. By the time I am done, potting up my plants, there is soil on the floor, soil on my hands, soil on the new plants, sometimes even soil in my hair. One way to keep from making a mess all over the plants, is this trick that makes potting them up easier. The other benefit is being able to get the soil between multitudes of plants without having to contend with their foliage hiding their roots.
Before getting started make sure your plants have been well watered and have drained the excess out.
