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 Rex Begonia Vine after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Grows vigorously in the growing season. Leaves will be bigger if the tendrils are allowed to climb and latch onto something like a trellis or pole. I keep mine in a hanging basket and have let it dangle for about 6 months in lower light. It did fine but didn’t grow much and the leaves started fading.
