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 Echeveria Elegans after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Remington came from a grocery store, so of course better light conditions and plant food would make him bussin’. He’s grown about 3 inches from original base to curving stalk + 8 new leaves after 3 months. Be gentle in removing dead leaves, use a tweezer and nip it at the base of the stalk. This helps in continued growth to rest of the plant. I also use a dropper when watering day happens. 3-4 full pipette drops at the most. One through rinse once a month(slowly run water from surface till dripping through bottom). Plant food once a month to keep the growth spirts going.
When I got it from Lowe’s I didn’t expect it to make it and was ready to do the walk of shame back in(it was the only red tipped and rather then watch it die I thought id try to save it) but within a few days and after trimming all the root rot off it was rooting and growing strong. Now two months in and it has just shot up in to a strong healthy little plant that I love to death.
