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.

What other plant parents say
What a wonderful mistake I purchased , what o thought was a golden pothos turned into a lemon lime colored vine. I love it. I have made for it from clippings. It was outdoor but I brought her in and happy I did , she is an excellent addition to my plant tribe.
I just started growing mine a few weeks ago and it’s already started making roots in it cup of water! I’m expecting to see some vines start to sprout soon. I really want to get another one of these guys! They’re so so so easy to take care of; all you have to do is stick some toothpicks in it and put it in a cup of water so it sits half submerged.
