There are countless fertilization products on the market to choose from, and even at We Love Houseplants we believe each one has its place and purpose. But if you are trying to make your planting hobby more environmentally-friendly, by using organic fertilizers, consider alternatives like bone meal and blood meal.
We have nothing but awesome opinions about bone meal! It is a great slow release, a natural plant food for your flowering favorites. Bone meal is a derivative of shredded animal bones. It may not sound so alluring, but the effects are wonderful! The meal is high in phosphorus and protein, and your plants will love it. Application is too-easy: simply top dress your flowering houseplants and water in. But if the majority of your plants are interior evergreens, try blood meal.
Blood meal is one of the best organic substitutes for nitrogen thriving houseplants. It is also derived from slaughter-housed animals. The blood of these animals is high in nitrogen and protein. Plants like pothos, chinese evergreen, or any plant that is without flowers, will appreciate a shot of this slow release, all natural product. Use it in the same way you would your bone meal: simply top dress your plant and water in.
