I’ve Re-Potted My Plant, Why Is It Getting Worse?

Ask The Plant Expert:

I’ve just discovered i had four spiderplants growing closely in the same pot, I’ve subsequently seperated them so their now in two equal sized containers. I’ve been as gentle as I could, but am afraid I’ve damaged the roots, or are they tougher than I think? – Matthew

Flower Shop Network Plant Expert Reply:

Every plant will go through some shock when transplanted, especially when the roots are disturbed. As long as you were able to keep the majority of the roots intact, your plants should be fine. However, they will be stressed for a few weeks. So, don’t over water them, and don’t fertilize them. Keep your environment as close to the same conditions they were before you separated them.  Then just be patient while they over come the stress.

Hope this information was helpful. Please let me know if I can help with anything else.
