Hey guys! So basically one month after getting new pots, the plants are already growing roots through the drainage holes. It's like they have the room to grow in the pot, they are just choosing not to Confused . Been watering them once every 10 days.

These were all bought in 2020 and for some reason are all doing this, my older plants never had.

I wanted to sort this out now, because probably the more they grow, the harder it will be to do it, and eventually it might be impossible to repot them without damaging the roots. Crying

Also the bigger root coming out of the jade's pot is turning darker by the day.

Taken 1 day apart, it is kinda hard to see because of the difference in lighting, but it is notable irl. Should I be worried? Sad

Thanks in advance! Thank You!
