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 Fishbone Air Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I enjoy this air plant and others because their care is so different from plants that require soil or hydroponics. Occasional bathing, an occasional spritz. I also use a spray-on fertilizer once in a while. For someone who prefers plants who demand little, require a small amount of space, but look quite interesting, air plants work well.
