As soon as the plant outgrows the ecocube, repot your plant by simply transplanting the entire ecocube into a regular flower pot with some soil, or outdoors. The ecocube will slowly decompose and turn into a valuable fertilizer for the plant. Alternatively, it is also possible to transplant your plant with its biodegradable planting cup into a regular flower pot with some soil, or outdoors. You can also use your empty cube as a pen holder!
