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 Cut Leaf Philodendron after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
When I first got the plant it was super root bound in the container I brought it home in. Then it got root rot. I trimmed the bad leaves and replaced all the soil with new soil which saved her and she has grown new leaves quickly.
Watch for mushy leaves and trim them quickly or they spread to the rest of the plant!
