Things to remember (Imporatant)

Repot after two-week interval

We recommend maintaining the plants in the original bag upon receipt and consistently watering them for the initial two weeks. After the plants have adjusted to your climate and achieved stability, you may proceed to repot them into larger containers or directly into the field.
