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 Florist Kalanchoe after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I haven’t had a lot of luck with my Kalanchoe. It nearly died on me last year just months after getting it, I’m starting to think it was poor conditions at the place I got it from but since repotting, it seems to be getting healthier now but haven’t had any flowers since :( fingers crossed we get them soon!
