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 Fung Wax Flower after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I’ve had this one for a little under a year. I have to appreciate it for its ability to tolerate a fair amount of neglect, as the first couple of months I had it, I hardly looked at it save for the occasional watering (it was winter.) This growing season it has started to put out some new growth, and I think it has potentially to be a nice trailing plant one day- however the growth on this one seems slow, so I think that will be more of a long-term goal for this one.
