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 Flamingo Flower after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I bought this plant in a supermarket when I didn’t know anything about blooming hormones. For the first couple months, the plant was pretty (with 6 flowers, in retrospect it was absolutely from the hormones) but not growing at all. At some point in winter I just said “to hell with it” and cut all the flowers. The result was instantaneous. 3 days later I already had new growth. Now the plant doubled in size this growing season and gave 3 natural flowers, that were even bigger than the hormone ones.
