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 Zebra Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.

What other plant parents say
Having a beginner plant that’s pet friendly is surprisingly difficult to find, and you end up with a lot of succulents. They’re often marketed as a “set it and forget it” plant, which isn’t true. They need water once every week or two, depending on size when you pick them up. Once they’re established, they propagate even under the most lacklustre conditions. Don’t let anyone tell you to treat them like a cactus, though. Avoid direct sunlight, you will know right away when they’re sunburnt! The leaves/nodes will darken and take on a purple-ish hue, and prolonged sun exposure will cause the tips to brown and break off (which you can see on mine, as I learned all this the hard way). A fun little spike monster that wouldn’t hurt a fly!
I’ve had this plant for a long, long time and for a while it was a dark purple brown colour. This was simply under watering. It needed more water than I previously thought it did. When I say fast grower I really mean it. Mine is huge now and i’ve had to repot it into a significantly larger pot to home it’s new growth. Lovely thing that is eye catching on a windowsill.
