Any suggestions on the best organic fertilizer to use indoors?
Most organic liquid fertilizers have an awful smell that is unacceptable to bring into a workplace. Plus, liquid fertilizers are bulky and heavy to carry around from office to office.
I do not have any experience using granular fertilizers.. any advice?

Organic fertilizers smell bad for a reason...they're organic! 

I've heard in the past of a product called "de-odorized Fish Emulsion" under a brand name that escapes me at the moment (Neptune's Harvest, maybe?).  Try Googling that.  But it's kind of hard to make organic ingredients non-smelly, because it's those smelly ingredients that make it valuable as a nutrient source.

Thanks for the tip

Do you think it would be a bad idea to add some kind of essential oil to the liquid fertilizers I currently have to "mask" the smell of the organic fertilizer? I know there used to be a liquid product called "Rain-Gro" available a few years ago, but due to labeling issues, it is no longer available in Canada. Rain-Gro smelled amazing, and I believe it contained oil of wintergreen.

I would think that, with all the concerns about allergies and so forth in the workplace, you would like to avoid introducing any scented products that might prompt an adverse reaction, real or imagined, by an employee or visitor at your accounts.  And you never can tell what the end result of mixing the aromas of the fertilizer with the "masking agent" might be...could be worse than the plain fertilizer odor itself.  Experiment if you wish, but introducing highly volatile organic vapors of any kind to the interior environment is just asking for trouble, IMHO.

I used fish emulsion fertilizer for many years at a company in NYC, along with soap mixtures for insect control.  One of the owner's selling points was organic plant care.  I don't remember what brand we used, but there was never a problem with smell.  We didn't use a strong mixture, I do know that.
