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 purpusiorum after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
It is quite hardy I have had mine for years and sometimes it did not get watered for months but it still managed to survive! When it is healthy it has very pretty dark green leaves with dark purple undersides. I would recommend to have it in indirect sunlight, but rotate the pot now and then so it doesn’t get too leggy. It really does not need much water because if you overwater it, it is prone to rotting.
Leaves frequently will randomly brown until they rot and fall off but as long as water and sunlight are consistent the plant as a whole stays healthy easily. Best to give indirect sunlight but close to a window. One of my other plants I grew from a dead leaf of this one that I recovered to grow a whole new plant!
