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 Monkey Tail Cactus after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Needs a lot of sun but survives without it, I’m a college student in a top floor north facing apartment and I genuinely don’t think it’s gotten solid sun in months. It grew tall and skinny but it also grew several new off shoots and has been super easy to take care of!
