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 Scarlet Star after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This guy is a first year pup from an airplant that was given to me as a gift (died shortly after producing three pups). If your brightly coloured airplant starts to brown - don’t worry - it’s producing pups and you’ll soon have new ones that will take 3-6 years to reach their full life cycle!
