I bought a beautiful lavender mum and am using it as a house plant.
The flowers are beginning to diminish and it is definitely "root bound" I want to transplant it and keep it as a house plant. Everything I read is about planting them outside or potted patio plants.
Any advise would be appreciated.

    Mums do bloom better outdoors, but you can keep it has a houseplant as long as it get enough sunlight. I'm not sure what type you have, but most will bloom a couple times a year. Don't worry that you have no blooms right might just not be time for it. You can replant in a larger pot, but as it grows, I would prun the top so it doesn't get leggy. If you deadhead the spent blooms, you can make them last longer.
