i Know  it  may  be  a  hassle to  move  a  lage plant ,but  in  nature  the
minerals  in  the  water  are  flushed  through to  the  groundwater  but
in a pot  most of the water evaporates leaving  the  minerals  and  salts.
either take the  plant  out  and  let  the  hose  run  and  rinse  the  soil
make  sure  the  drain  hole  is  clear  of  roots  and the  water   is
flowing through the  soil  or  put  it  in  the  shower and  shower the
whole  thing for  45 min or  more  but   remember  your  rinsing  the  salt
out  of  the  soil  and  there  probly  a  lot   there
