    Plant rust is a common fungus that plagues home gardens and major crops around the world. While there are a number of chemical solutions available to treat plant rust, many gardeners prefer instead to use a more natural approach with the household items they are likely to have at hand.

      Potted houseplants add a touch of green to the indoor environment, providing dramatic flair with drooping vines or long, cascading leaves. Many houseplants are long-lived, sometimes even handed down through generations. At some point, these potted plants may develop soil compaction, or a gardener may realize they've potted an unfamiliar plant in the wrong kind of medium. In either case, a gardener interested in changing the soil of an indoor plant will find it is a simple task.

    How to plant root bound plants: Make numerous downward cuts so that the circular roots are cut. Remove any brown or black roots, which are most likely dead. Keep the white roots, which are alive. ‘Massage’ the root ball of your plant, which will help loosen the roots even more. Plant your plant and its ‘freed roots’ in a larger pot or in the ground. The newly cut roots will grow outward and your plant will start growing again. And that’s all there is to fixing a root-bound plant.
