Interiorscape Forum / Scaper Talk Discussion Forum / Plants / Fertilization For Interior Green/Tropical Plants
Posted:  09 Dec 2016 23:22  
Hello everyone,

I'm the operations manager for a interior landscape company in Minnesota. I'm looking for some insight from others on fertilizing interior green/tropical plants. Our customers have plants both in individual containers and in planter beds.

How many people here keep their interior green/tropical plants on a fertilization schedule or program? If so, how often do you fertilize and what brands or type of fertilizer do you use?

Thanks in advance for any help or insight you can offer!

Minimally.  Most interior foliage plants require very little in the way of fertilizer (think of fertilizer as a way of growing and maintaining foliage, and we really are only concerned about the latter).  We fertilize probably twice a year, at half strength or less, with any balanced fertilizer (20-20-20 is good).  You may want to use Epsom salts at 1 TBSP per gallon a couple of times a year to green up things that may be suffering from pH issues or leaching of micronutrients like magnesium and sulfur from the medium.  That's all, folks!

Use an organic fertilizer as it will not have another side effects.
