In addition to water, plants will also need to be fed in order to provide nutrients they would ordinarily receive in their natural habitats. For most houseplants, a simple liquid houseplant food should work perfectly, and it’s as simple as following the measurements on the bottle to dilute a little bit in with your watering can. Many houseplants will be happy with being fed this way once a month in the active growing season, though some large plants, and plants that are in bloom, will prefer to be fed every two weeks. Palms are particularly hungry for nutrients, though specialist palm food is available!

Worm castings provide a no-fuss alternative to liquid food for the busy plant parent - simply mix them in with your soil, and they will provide everything your plants need to grow strong and healthy.
