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 Florida Moonlight Caladium after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
The leaves on this are stunning and so unique but they should never be in direct sunlight or they will get burnt instantly. I had this plant in a semi-shaded window for no more than 2 days and its top layer of leaves got fried. Pretty fast grower so the holes left by trimming should get filled quickly.
