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 Crispy Wave Fern after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I love my crispy wave fern, its a survivor! Whenever it needs to be watered it starts to droop but comes right back up after being watered. Its current potted in peat and seems to really like that kind of soil because it retains so much water. However if this plant goes too long without humidity it starts getting little light brown spots. Thankfully they aren’t too noticeable and can be fixed by placing this plant closer to a humidifier!
