On behalf of Expert Village, my name is Craig Morrell. I'm with Landscape Restorations in Miami, Florida. We're here at Palm Hammock Orchid Estate and we're talking about planting, and fertilizing. This video clip is titled finishing the potting process. We've already started repotting our coleus into a larger pot using pro-mix. This happens to be what's called an artificial or soilous mix. We're simply going to add mix right across the top of the root ball and just shake it in, hold the plant out of the way, and add mix, press gently, and remember to keep the top of the original root ball above the new potting mix. All we need to do is press gently around the edges, tap once, try to get the soilous mix off of your fingers because you're not dirty anymore, and now the plant's now done. Ready for the garden.
