Do you want more pot?

Greenhouses and nurseries are filled with them.

Plastic pots, filled with soil, a bit of gravel, and a tiny seedling. The seedling grows quickly with the moisture and stability provided by the black pot. As the seedling adds leaves and height, the roots curl around the bottom of the pot and, for a moment, the plant stops growing.

Expert gardeners maintain development by giving the plant a larger pot. They know plants will grow tall in a small pot, but their stalks remain weak from coiled root balls and limited exposure to the elements. So the gardener’s hands gently break apart the coiled roots and place the plant into a larger container. The transition is tough at first, a little wilting is normal during repotting. After a few days, the roots find their place and growth begins once again.

Are you deliberately repotting? Or is a coiled root ball lulling you into a stability-fueled plateau?
