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 Orris-root after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I’ve had this sitting outside for about 8 or 9 years now and it has thrived on the little care I give her. It’s weathered hurricanes, bird’s nesting and snowstorms with little trouble. I didn’t realize what it was, until it put put out the prettiest purple and orange flowers for the past two summers.
