Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Common Moonseed in your home 🏡.
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 Common Moonseed after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
