Should I feed this houseplant?
You can water the Mexican Fortune Tree once a month during spring and summer; try our vegan, organic plant food.
Our organic indoor plant food is made from Seaweed, harvested sustainably. Seaweed provides a delicate blend of growth hormones and micronutrients that is perfect for all indoor plants. Houseplants grow throughout spring, summer and autumn, so they will benefit from organic fertiliser during this time to encourage flowering and keep them healthy and well.
Suppose you have been searching for alternatives to blood, bone and other so-called “organic” fertilisers. In that case, our original organic Vegan Plant food is for you and is sold exclusively through our website.
Indoor Plants need a balance of nutrients to survive and grow; deficiencies stop plants from growing big and strong. Nutrients absorbed through the soil help the plant Photosynthesis, the process by which plants use water, light and carbon to create oxygen and energy.
