In this quick video I explain how to fertilize indoor plants. When do you need to start fertilizing your new plants? What type of fertilizer is best?
There are many fertilizer options for house plants (and I list many organic fertilizer options in the video), but the most important thing to remember is that more fertilizer is NOT better! Find the right fertilizer that works for you and remember that potted plants need nutrients in order to thrive. If you are unsure about whether or not to fertilize, start with very small amounts during the growing season ( when you plants are producing new leaves and growth).
Do not feed your plants if they are not growing! As a general rule, it is best to fertilize only during the growing season, although it is possible for plants to grow at other times as well. It is important not to over-fertilize as you may end up doing more harm than good to your houseplants.
