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 Dieffenbachia 'Compacta' after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
One of my favorite plants!
Striking leaves, steady growth, forgiving, mine has been happy in a range of lights, from medium/high to medium/low.
It’s a great plant for anyone who would like to get started with something more spectacular than your typical pothos or snake plant.
