Pros: provides essential nutrients
Cons: none noted
Dyna-gro Nutrition SolutionsTM Foliage-pro Fertilizer 9-3-6 is a water soluble, plant food concentrate packaged in a handy 8 fluid ounce plastic jug. Over the years I have used a variety of methods for feeding plants.
As much as I like Iris, Lily and other flowering plants in the yard, I fill my house with foliage filled containers indoors. Dyna-gro Foliage-pro Fertilizer is an up to date formula especially formulated to provide all essential minerals needed for optimum foliage growth making it an ideal medium for the tropicals we generally see as house plants.
Fertilizers are labeled with 3 numbers denoting nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium content. N-P-K reading 10-15-10 indicates the amount of essential nutrients in the fertilizer. A 5-10-14 fertilizer means the products contain 5% nitrogen, 10% phosphorus, and 14% potassium.
Fertilizer ratios are standardized; meaning for the sake of simplicity, the nutrients are listed in the same order: N (nitrogen) - P (phosphorus) - K (potassium).
While using a foliage type fertilizer on flowering plants may not harm the cultivar, it is not likely to produce the desired results either. Foliage fertilizer produces foliage, not blossoms, etc.
Dyna-gro Nutrition Solutions Foliage-pro Fertilizer 9-3-6 tropical foliage concentrate is formulated with a 3 -1- 2 ratio recommended for foliage production. 3 -1- 2 ratio means a greater mineral uptake by foliage plants following feeding. Salts retention is reduced. Producing vigorous, controlled growth; Dyna-gro is first-rate for low light gardening.
The numeric value of the numbers is not so important as is the ratio of the elements. i.e. whether a 5-10-10 fertilizer or a 10-20-20 fertilizer the ratio is the same; it matters little which is used if the fertilizer needed is one having greater percentages of phosphorus and potassium than nitrogen.
As a rule balanced fertilizers such as 10-10-10, 14-14-14, and the like can be used successfully for most garden plant purposes. Fertilizers having less nitrogen and greater amounts of phosphorus and potassium reading 5-10-10, or 9-12-12, and the like are generally very good for flowering and fruiting plants.
Dyna-gro Nutrition Solutions Foliage-pro Fertilizer is packaged as 8 ounce, quart, 1 gallon, 5 gallon 15 gallon, 55 gallon sizes for home and professional use. Use of Dyna-gro is simple: for maintenance use ¼ teaspoon per gallon with each watering, for foliage application ¼ to ½ tea spoon per gallon can be sprayed on leaves.
While I do not apply any fertilizer with each watering; I do apply both as watering solution and as spray once or twice a month during summer growth months. The amount of foliage my plants produce with minimal feeding persuades me that were I to follow a vigorous ongoing feeding program we would soon be completely engulfed in foliage.
Dyna-gro Nutrition SolutionsTM Foliage-pro Fertilizer 9-3-6 packaged in a handy 8 fl oz Liquid Concentrate Plastic Jug for home use; holds a product designed to encourage dynamic and vigorous development. Containing all essential elements for lush foliage growth; Foliage-pro Fertilizer is reasonably priced, straightforward to use and my plants are robust and full-bodied.
Happy to recommend Dyna-gro Nutrition SolutionsTM Foliage-pro Fertilizer 9-3-6.
