How Often Shoud you Check the Roots After Transplanting
by: Jeree

Good question!
The only time I check the roots is if the plant is showing signs of stress and has to be repotted.
If the plant looks okay I recommend leaving the plant alone.
Removing a plant from its grow pot damages the tiny root hairs (that do all the work). If the plant looks good I assume the roots are fine too. A few decaying roots will not cause any problems.
