WHAT A PLANT NEEDS

Every plant needs a mix of three main chemical elements to thrive: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. These nutrients are all found in plant fertiliser. When you bring a plant home from the nursery, it will have fertiliser in its soil or potting mix already. These nutrients will be gradually used up so they will need to be replaced. 

As a guide, feed plants in soil-based mixture every three months and soil-less plants, like succulents and cacti, every six to eight weeks. However, make sure to only feed the plant during its growth periods; spring and summer. If you feed a plant during its rest period you can damage it.
