Question
hi Darlene,
This is my first time here asking question. Actually, 1 month before i bought a gold fish plant and its quiet big . i just want to know do i need to re-pot it or leave it like that ??

i live in montreal, Canada.
thanks..

Answer
Salma,

Leave it like that. It is a plant that is fine being root bound and will bloom more if it is. You can take cuttings and start a 2nd plant to give as a gift if you would like. Jusst insert them in a fresh pot of soil. They root easily. Write again if you have more questions. Good luck!
