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 Philodendron Hastatum after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Very beautiful, big leaves. Grows very quickly, especially when it’s little. Easy to care for and not labour intensive.
Only downside, not really a downside, just a note really. Leaves brown very easily. Bruised leaves will brown quite quickly, and they are delicate so they tend to bruise easily.
