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 Ogre Ears after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
My two jade plants have been in a garage in 46 degree Fahrenheit weather for a few weeks, just brought them inside and they’re still doing fine. Just make sure you use a good soil with no bugs, because i didn’t do that. i’ve been treating it with cinnamon water when watering. it’s staying strong with no more bugs! my bird bit a piece off a while ago, and i just stuck it back in soil and it started to regrow!!!
Literally one of the hardiest plants I’ve ever owned. I’ve had it for years and pretty much forget about it from time to time. It’s the perfect plant for anyone who wants plants but is scared to under water it. I genuinely water it MAYBE every 2-3 weeks if i remember.
A really cute and easy plant to look after - even if you’re particularly forgetful - which propagates quickly and easily.
However, I find that without constant attention, it does not grow very fast or large, so takes a while to be an impressive succulent to look at. Loveable nonetheless.
