      Thanks for the message. You dont need to change the soil out unless you are changing from potting soil to gritty mix. You only need to up-pot as the plant grows and add new, similar soil. Fertilizer in important for most plants no matter the soil type. We apply a slow release granular fertilizer every march. Any balanced fertilizer will work fine. This can be 7-7-7, 10-10-10, 20-20-20…. Be sure to follow the instructions. Too much fertilizer can damage a plant. Granular fertilizer is easier to use because it lasts for several months. Water soluble fertilizer is easier to find. Selection will vary due to interstate regulations.

      Have a great week. Please call or email if you have questions or concerns.
