Q:

When is the best time to transplant houseplants?

A:

The optimum time for transplanting is at the beginning of active growth, which for most tropical houseplants is in spring. The exception to this are winter-blooming houseplants such as Jasmine and Amaryllis that are best potted in the fall after their dormant period. Some houseplants just like to grow pot-bound and resent being moved altogether. Rather than repotting plants such as Clivia and Fern, let them remain in a maximum size pot and top-dress annually with a sterilized houseplant potting soil.
