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 Hemionitis Arifolia after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I love this plant. It has a lot of personality with its leaves and wire like stems. Like my other ferns, this fern requires some attention. It drinks a lot of water, requiring watering every 2-3 days. I keep it in a pot with drainage and check the soil every day with a chopstick. If it is almost dry I give it water. If you let it dry out completely between watering the leaves will curl up. If you get water to it fast enough they recover very quickly. If you aren’t able to tend to you plants daily, this is not the plant for you.
