Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Eastern White Cedar in your home 🏡.
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 Eastern White Cedar after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
*This plant sits in a self-watering pot in an east-facing window. It is three years old.*
This is the one plant that grew from a pack of 10 seeds for a Grow-Your-Own-Bonsai box. I think it was meant to be a joke, but here it is! (Although it does not look like the picture on the box!) It is a simple plant. I have enjoyed watching it grow and cheering it on when it was very small. Every Christmas, I hang a bright, red, shiny bauble on it.
