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 Urn Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
*These plants sit on my mantle in a west-facing living room. I water them when the soil is dry and swap them from one side to the other when I water them. I have never fertilized them.*
These plants and I tolerate each other. I leave them alone and they leave me alone. These are pups that came from a gorgeous bromeliad that I had almost three years ago. The mother plant was beautiful and pinkish-purple. Once she flowered, I couldn't bring myself to just toss her in the compost pile. She sat sadly on my piano for over a year and pushed out these two pups. I potted them when they were large enough to detach them from the mother plant.
The mother plant got worse over the next year and I finally said good bye to it. She left me with these two guys that have sulked on my mantle ever since. Maybe I'll fertilize them, then they might be happier. Until then, I think they are still holding a grudge that I composted their mother.
