It's Called "Up-Potting"

I spent an afternoon last weekend taking starts out of their tiny pots and putting them in bigger pots, so that they can grow bigger & better.

I learned later (from this website) that this is called Up-Potting. And I learned that I was doing it right. That's a nice touch.

I think they're already growing faster.

And for the sake of updating the Free Start Pots
post, this is how easy it is to "up-pot" from those little things. I consider it excellent success:

Just peel back the top of the paper (and that's even optional!), set it on a base of potting soil, and fill in around with more soil. No fuss, no muss, and it doesn't fall to pieces in your hands!
