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 String of Pickles after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I left my string of rubies in almost no light as I was moving and she began to turn purple on her leaves (as seen in initial pic)!! Once I moved her back into indirect light she turned green once again and has been thriving! Just keep ur plants happy and near windows and they’ll love you :))
Haven’t had any issues with this plant and it grows super well and fast! Sits in my south facing window with direct sun and gets water every 2-4 days and is pretty tough! Same as it’s relative plants like the pearls and dolphins they’re all in the same window and grow wonderfully. I would definitely recommend!
I love my string of pickles plant, Meg. She is my hanging plant that hangs from the ceiling of my bedroom and she is very cute, and for people like me who have difficulty taking care of plants, don’t worry cause she will live out anything- ok maybe not everything....
