We talked about the main mistakes in a short video

one Forget about the schedule

A common mistake is to add additives to the soil spontaneously when remembered. In fact, tightening with fertilizer is not so scary. Much less useful for the plant is too frequent top dressing and a downgraded regimen for the use of mineral and organic additives (usually they are applied in turn).

How to do better

Those who fertilize indoor flowers should definitely keep a notebook or make a separate note on the phone, where you can record each application. It is also convenient to prescribe a schedule for watering and transplanting, as well as note when the plant was sick and how it was treated.

2 measure proportions by eye

Fertilizers are most often sold in liquid format. This is a concentrate of active substances that must be diluted with water before watering the soil. If this is not done or too little water is added, there is a risk of burning the roots.

How to do better

Do not ignore the instructions on the package. Buying a plastic measuring jug and cup will make it much easier to measure out the right amount of water and concentrate.

3 Fertilize a diseased plant

There is a myth that a diseased plant just needs to be fed more actively — and then it will itself defeat any fungus, bacteria or parasites. In fact, this approach does not work: diseased plants are weakened, so they simply cannot actively absorb top dressing.

How to do better

A diseased plant must first be treated, and the cause of the problem must be found and corrected. For example, unsuitable temperature conditions or irrigation regime. And only after that you can start feeding the flower so that it gains strength again.

four Don’t take breaks

Too zealous approach to feeding will not benefit home flowers. All plants have their own biological rhythm, which must not be disturbed. And any fertilizer is an active substance that affects the flower and can bring down its regimen.

How to do better

Read about your plant on the Internet and write down the approximate dates when it passes from one period of life to another. For example, at the time of active growth and release of leaves, nutrition should be more saturated. And during dormancy or the flowering season, on the contrary, you need to pause.

5 Do not fertilize at all

Many choose indoor plants on the principle of unpretentiousness, hoping that they will not have to be fertilized. Indeed, some species (for example, cacti and succulents) can live for years without additional feeding, especially if they are at least occasionally transplanted into fresh soil. But you need to understand that any plant takes nutrients from the soil. If they are not enough, it will not die instantly, but will cease to grow and bloom, become less resistant to diseases and parasites.

How to do better

Fertilizing plants is not as complicated and time-consuming as it might seem. You only need to read what fertilizers a particular species needs and how often to apply them. Usually they are simply added to water for irrigation: the main thing is to choose the right proportion of the active substance.
