Everything that grows on this planet earth needs food to grow. Nothing can thrive without nutrients. Regardless of whether it is fauna or flora, a nutrient composition that is adapted to the needs is essential for life and growth. The plants absorb these nutrients dissolved in water through their roots. Plants cannot move to the nutrients they need, they have to cope with the prevailing conditions. It is therefore important that we provide the plants that we cultivate with the necessary nutrients, in the form of fertilization.
These plant nutrients can be divided into two groups: firstly, the main nutrients and secondly, the trace elements. Not to be forgotten are oxygen, hydrogen and carbon as the basis of all life on earth.
The main nutrients include nitrogen, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and sulphur. Plants need these elements in larger quantities. Nitrogen is important for leaf growth, potassium supports the cells and promotes water absorption. Calcium is also important for the plant cell and magnesium is particularly important for photosynthesis and the formation of the plant pigment. Phosphorus is crucial in flower formation and sulfur plays a role in protein building.
Our FARBIO® organic fertilizer for green plants is a natural nutrient complex that provides your houseplant with all the main nutrients and thus supports the development of lush green leaves and magnificent flowers.
Trace elements include: iron, copper, zinc, chlorine, manganese, boron and molybdenum. Plants require smaller amounts of these nutrients, but they are important for healthy plant growth. If you fertilize your plants to a large extent with an organic fertilizer, you usually cover the need for trace elements sufficiently.
The FARBIO® organic micro-complex is a premium fertilizer with nanoparticles for use on your green and indoor plants, fruit, vegetable and herb crops. For rapid absorption of complex micronutrients and strengthening of the self-protection mechanism.
What should be considered when fertilizing?
The individual nutrient requirements of the individual plant species must always be taken into account. Some are heavy consumers and others medium or weak consumers, and other plants have a higher iron requirement, for example. Knowing the special requirements of your own plants is important in order to always have beautiful, long-lasting plants that are cared for according to your needs. Another aspect for the nutrient supply of plants is the composition of the soil and the pH value of the earth. This factor significantly influences the nutrient uptake by the plants.
