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 Mexican Lily after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This plant is usually sold as a Christmas plant so I don’t know if others keep it as all year round as a houseplant. The leaves grow insanely fast and so tall that I have to cut them and next thing I know there’s a new leaf sprouting. I have never been able to get this to bloom after the initial bloom when I bought it. It is a bulb plant so I might not be doing something right because I’ve never done a bulb plant as a houseplant before
