Repotting Services

Sometimes root-bound plants become too much to manage on your own. We have the necessary equipment and expertise to repot the most unruly of plants.

At-home Repotting Services

Chicago Plants staff is here to help the overwhelmed plant parent with a plant that desperately needs a new home. 

Check out our calendar below to find a time for Chicago Plants staff to visit your home with all of the supplies needed to perform a repotting. Pricing varies by the size of the plant(s) - more information can be found in the event booking details. 

Feel free to reach out to the shop via phone or email if you have any questions on the process.

Hear from one of our clients:

"Ryan and his team were incredible to work with. I contracted them for a few 'plant projects' around our condo. I was initially impressed by the responsiveness, speed and knowledge during introductions. What impressed me more was the resourcefulness and professionalism while onsite. Super tricky job and spots to pick plants for -- and they nailed it at every turn!! Including a large re-pot that was so compact and restricted they needed a hammer to open it up and get it into a better pot!!"

— Local Plant Parent Donald

Repotting a 40-year-old Monstera:

These before and after photos were taken during a Chicago Plants project repotting a 40-year-old Monstera! Things almost took a turn when Ryan discovered that its original 6” terra cotta pot was still in the center of the plant’s roots. But in the end the plant was saved! Now it’s standing tall overlooking Lake Michigan.
