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 Apple after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
My 15 year old son started this apple seed from a bag of apples we purchased. He has a green thumb of his own. It is important to cool the seeds in the fridge. He germinates them in a paper towel sealed in a sandwich baggie. We also have a celery sprouting somewhere...??? Who knows what he will attempt to grow next!
