If you are trying to move in Los Angeles, there are various things you need to consider when planning your upcoming relocation. Since LA has a warm climate, many individuals have plants in their homes or offices. When moving, many people don’t consider that these plants are usually oddly shaped, hard to pack, and extremely fragile; therefore, they require special care when being moved. Here are some tips from Atlas Van Lines on moving plants.
Three weeks before moving day, repot plants from clay pots into unbreakable plastic pots of the same size; changing pot sizes may harm plants.
Two weeks before moving day, prune larger plants to make them compact for easy handling and transport. Pruning also yields healthy, bushy, attractive plants. To prune, simply pinch back newer growth with your thumb and forefinger. Do not prune ferns and succulents (e.g., cactus, jade plants, aloe).
One week before moving day, check plants for insects and parasites. If you apply insecticides, exercise caution and follow label directions.
Two days before moving day, water your plants normally, taking care to not overwater. Too much water can cause plants to freeze in cold weather or promote fungus growth in warm weather.
Moving day: Pack your plants in the morning (the night before is okay, too).
