Our tip for easy fertilizing of your plants
Create a fertilization plan in your calendar, in a notebook or in your new plant app: Simply write down the names of your plants and the corresponding fertilization times. As a general rule, houseplants should be fertilized twice a month from March to October, and once a month from November to February, unless you are using a grow light. Then you have to apply enough fertilizer all year round!
The right care for your indoor plants is the FARBIO® organic fertilizer for green plants . It supports and strengthens your plant with important nutrients, which are essential for intensive leaf green and healthy growth of all plant parts. If you want to make it even easier for yourself, then we recommend our foliar fertilizers: a quick and easy form of liquid fertilization and a supplement to the nutrient supply of plants via the roots.
Our FARBIO® foliar fertilizers are mixed with water in a spray bottle and then sprayed over the entire leaf surface. They provide the plants with targeted nutrients that they can immediately absorb and utilize through the leaves.
