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 Hippeastrum 'Red Lion' after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I got this as a gift and followed the directions. At the end of the season after it’s beautiful leaves started to droop I cut them back and set the bulb aside to dry out so I could have it flower again. This crazy thing started to grow again on its own in the dark! So I repotted it and now I’m letting it do it’s own thing on its own schedule. I named him Gene Simmons because he stuck his tongue out at my schedule.
