Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Aluminum Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
So when I bought this little guy it was FULL of spider mites. I ended up making a homage essential oil mix to kill them but didn’t dilute it enough and I burned 99% of the leaves. The stems that did survive, I plucked them off and put them in water in about a week started to sprout roots!!
Such an easy to grow plant with beautiful leaf patterns! Mine does extremely well sitting in an East facing window. They will let you know when they’re thirsty by dramatically “fainting,” and then they perk right up after being watered. Grows rapidly so very rewarding to care for. Great beginner plant.
