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 Silken Pincushion Cactus after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I found Grogu in a random box on a back shelf in the garden center at Home Depot. He was unlabeled so the cashier gave him to me for free. I was interested in what type of cacti he was because of his red spines. After a few weeks he seemed pretty dry and looked as though he was shrinking/leaning so, because we live in a hot and dry climate, I watered him generously. He plumped up but still looked like he was leaning and I noticed his spines were falling off and some water droplets leaking from where there was a spine. I backed off on the watering and just gave him enough to keep him looking green and hydrated. He is a tough little cactus. I am hoping he blooms later!
