Nutrient, fertilizer, and repotting needs for Marguerite: repot after 2X growth

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

They can produce a lot of buds which can lead to bigger flowers dying so remember to keep that number down
