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 Zwartkop after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Get succulent soil from a home improvement store like Lowe’s or Home Depot, it helps it stay alive better. Make sure to have a pot with drain holes in the bottom, and not a miniature pot, around 4-6 inches should do. This plant craves sun light, and when it gets enough, it will turn towards the sun and turn a dark, rich red/purple color, so make sure to put this plant in a place with a lot of sunlight. It needs to be watered about every 6 days plus or minus but if you forget , no worries, it’s leaves will wrinkle but soon after you water it, the leaves will plump up again since this is a resilient plant.
