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 Secunda after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Deceivingly tough plant to care for. Very high sun requirements - needs FULL sun. I live in Ohio where it is always overcast and I have had to add grow lights to supplement the lack of sun. Also do not try to fertilize if you don’t have an abundance of sun. I made that mistake and almost killed my babies. They are being rehabbed now.
These plants are super easy to take care of, and are almost impossible to kill! They can survive bright light or low light, and they only need to be watered every 2 months. 10/10 recommend for a beginner plant owner, or somebody who doesn’t have a lot of time on their hands to take care of plants, as this plant needs very little attention.
