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 Common Buttonbush after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This plant is a succulent and came in bloom and as you can see, it’s flowers look like dandelions. But less fluffy. All the blooms are gone and the plant grows on. It’s planted in a ceramic pot with no drain hole and in succulent mix. I water carefully aware that too much water will certainly kill it.
