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 Swan's Neck after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This plant needs decent light. Maintenance commitment requires a power wash monthly to remove bugs. A good indicator is to peel your eye for spiders (which are good! They remove bugs) so the plant is not infested. Use a moisture meter to see how the plant / soil / pot reacts to watering which should be every 12-14 days.
