repotting house plants

KamoKamo Posts: 41
I've got several house plants that need repotting, I've got nice indoor pots for them to go in but as I've never repotted a house plant before I wasn't sure if I should pot them up straight into the pot or pot them into a new plastic pot and pop that inside the nice pot? Sorry if this is a bit of a silly question, at the moment they are all in plastic pots inside an indoor pot.

    What kind are the new pots?
    If the new ones have drainage holes in I would pot straight into them unless they seem too big for the root ball size of the plants that need repotting.

    If they are pots without drainage holes I would repot the plants into plastic ones again so you can lift and check them for standing water.

    Thanks Rubytoo, the pots don't have drainage holes so I'll pop them into plastic ones.
