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 Rabbit's Foot Fern after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
One of my favourite plants in my collection. Has never let me down. I like to keep his soil moist and mist occasionally. Likes a cool, dark corner of my room in summer. In winter, I keep him in a brighter spot. Grows so quickly in summer. I’m very proud of him.
I want to say that this pony does well in moderate climate. Definitely not doing well in Central Valley heat where the temps get up to 110 for a good 6 months out of the year. As in constant from day to night (night gets to 90s) . The little leaves got really dry even though I most every day. I think this plant would thrive in Northern California and southern a California weather.
