Fertilizer for Houseplants

What's the difference between "fertilizer" and "nutrients"?

There's no difference - simply two ways to describe the mineral elements growers use to enhance plant growth.

What do the numbers in the front of the package mean?

All fertilizers contain three main ingredients (called macro-nutrients), Nitrogen(N), Phosphorus(P), and Potash(K). The three numbers on the front panel describe what percentage of each element is in the fertilizer. This is called the "NPK" ratio. 

Nutrients are cheaper in larger quantites. How much should I buy?

It's always a good idea to keep your nutrient supply fresh. We recommend using all nutrients in a year or less. The chemical elements inside the package are in a concentrated form and they deteriorate over time.
