Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your String of Buttons after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This is an older picture, but mine has grown so much since then. I let us completely dry our before the next watering & I have it right in front of a window so it does get a lot of sun. I love it so much and I would definitely recommend it for a beginner plant parent because it’s so easy to care for.
i actually propagated this plant after a larger plant got root rot. i had her in water for much longer than necessary and contemplated keeping her in water forever but decided to put her in soil. did super all but had a hard time staying upright so i added a stick to help.
