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 Dendrobium Nobile Orchid after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I have had so much fun with this little orchid. I bought it with 2 stems full of beautiful flowers which lasted a few months. After they dropped I trimmed it back and with correct watering practices (NO ICE CUBES) And some orchid fertilizer it has grown a new stem, new leaves, and is about to bloom again within 3 months. I thought orchids were difficult until I got this one!
Once I learned that flowering blooms on my orchid are seasonal and not to be expected all the time (what high expectations these are, I realize), seeing continuing new leaf growth over the last year has been so amazing! This orchid is the first I’ve managed to keep alive, maybe because I kept watering it even when then the blooms fell off... so I’m quite proud. ☺️
