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 Grape Jelly Dyckia after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
The Grape Jelly Dyckia seems content to just sit and look pretty (it actually stands out in the crowd). I haven’t had it quite a month, but so far the little care instructions given by the seller have proved to be exactly what the plant wants—for her soil to dry out 100% before being given water, nothing in the way of humidity and plenty of sunlight. Her color is a vibrant deep green with iridescent purple highlights. It’s a good thing that she’s low maintenance though, because one of her nicknames is “saw blade plant” for a good reason. Spikes up and down the sides of every leaf and they hurt! Get long tweezers and scissors to work with her.
