Should I feed begonia?
Yes!! Our organic indoor plant food is perfect and 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.
Happy Houseplants’ Organic Tropical Plant Dew helps recreate the begonia's natural environment and increases the humidity, and provides the nutrients the plants need to grow and thrive indoors.
