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 Marimo Moss Balls after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
They are super easy plants; all they need is very cold water, a glass container of some sort, no direct sunlight (or else they start to brown and smell bad) and a stir every once in a while (to mimic they being rolled by the water and waves). They are also very cute! They need like little to no attention. 😊
