What nutrients does your plant need?

Welche Nährstoffe benötigt deine Pflanze? - FARBIO® - Nachhaltige Bio-Flüssigdünger aus Hamburg

Everything that grows on this planet Earth needs food to grow. Without nutrients nothing can thrive. Regardless of whether it is fauna or flora, a nutrient composition adapted to the needs determines life and growth. The plants absorb these nutrients dissolved in water through their roots. Plants cannot move towards the nutrients they need; they have to cope with the prevailing conditions. Therefore, it is important that we provide the plants 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.

Main nutrients

The main nutrients include nitrogen, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and sulfur. 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 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 supplies your houseplant with all the main nutrients and thus supports the development of lush green leaves and magnificent flowers.

Trace elements

The trace elements include: iron, copper, zinc, chlorine, manganese, boron and molybdenum. Plants require smaller amounts of these nutrients, but they are still important for healthy plant growth. If you fertilize your plants to a large extent with an organic fertilizer, you will usually adequately cover their trace element requirements.

The FARBIO® organic microcomplex is a premium fertilizer with nanoparticles for use on your green and house plants, fruit, vegetable and herb crops. For the rapid absorption of complex micronutrients and strengthening of the self-protection mechanism.

What should you pay attention to when fertilizing?

The individual nutrient requirements of the individual plant species must always be taken into account. Some are heavy feeders and others are medium feeders or weak feeders, and still 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 as required. Another aspect for the nutrient supply of plants is the condition of the soil and the pH value of the soil. This factor significantly influences the absorption of nutrients by the plants.
