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 Marguerite after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.

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