Alright, now that I have my second plant, I thought maybe I'd just pot it up in the old pot that it was in. It's still a pretty pot, but you can see that it's dirty. Someone's lived in here for 3 years. We got to kind of clean house a little bit. Take out some of the old soil. I got a bucket of water. I'm going to add some disinfectant into it. Nice and soapy. I got a brush and I'm just going to scrub it out. Inside and out. Get out all that soil. Sometimes there might be a little bit of algae, especially if the pot's been outside. That's pretty good. Pretty clean. You could probably rinse this up and most of the dirt would be out of it.
