Be sure to transplant Spathiphyllum after buying it in the store, because there he was in the technical pot and, most likely, has already outgrown it. An indication that the pot becomes too small, are the roots of the plants poking out from the drainage holes at the bottom. Another reason to be sure to transplant store-bought flower is the soil and planting method. Most often, the flowers grow in peat, and this type of soil not all plants. As a rule, technical pots, no drainage, and the roots are damaged from this. When a damaged flower, you should carefully inspect roots for the presence of pests and, if necessary, to take all measures to eliminate them.
In the future, the Spathiphyllum is a good feel when to transplant it once a year. Each pot must be greater than the previous diameter, 1-2 cm, with the exception of those cases when the plant is divided, and every Bush to be planted in a separate small pot. Optimum composition of soil for Spathiphyllum - one part leaf soil, one part peat and half-part peat soil with quartz sand. If possible, would be part of vermiculite or sphagnum moss - this will prevent the soil from drying out. In that case, if you make any ground by yourself is difficult, you can use a commercially available ready-made mixtures of soil for Araceae - they are perfect. Spathiphyllum transplanted before flowering, in early January, or right after flowering in late autumn.
As dry this plant before transplanting is almost impossible to handle it in a new pot with caution not to damage the leaves and roots. Before starting the process the working surface is veiled by Newspapers, any unnecessary paper or polyethylene, so as not to stain the interior of the earth poured from the pot. A new pot, except for size, choose another and the holes in its bottom, so as to water the Spathiphyllum is most convenient from the tray. Selecting a pot of suitable size, with a roomy pan and a large hole at the bottom poured a layer of pebbles or clay pellets as drainage, to leave excess moisture. Not recommended for use as drainage foam pieces. The roots of the flower grow into them and get injured then in subsequent transplants.
Sprinkling the drainage in the new pot, remove the plant from the old. For this you will need ruler or any other sufficiently long and flat object to separate the roots and soil from the walls of the pot. Turn the pot on its side, and, taking the plant in a bun at the base of the leaf, pull it out while turning the pot, the extract was evenly. Not necessary after the flower with a lump of earth will be removed, shake the ground with its roots. The whole lump of soil placed in the new pot for drainage layer new soil and poured the required amount of land on the sides and top. After the flower is transplanted, it should be sprayed from a spray bottle and do not water for about a day.
