I live in a small apartment. I like to have a bit of green around the place, and for the last two years I've not been able to successfully grow much except aloe vera, which is very forgiving and currently thriving! It's grown so much since I got it that I've been thinking it probably needs repotting, as it's still growing out of the seedling container it was given to me in. I've been putting this off because I've never actually kept a houseplant long enough to need repotting before, so I'm unsure as to what sort of soil I should be using, and whether I should get a much bigger pot or just a slightly bigger one for the moment. Any advice for a newbie?
