Why is Miracle-Gro killing my plants?

When using small portions of Miracle-Gro Liquid, it can cause FATAL fertilizer burn, which is a condition that results in the burning or scorching of foliage. According to the product label, “all plants should be able to tolerate a little fertilizer without suffering yellow or brown leaves.” However, this is not always the case.

What should you not use Miracle Grow on?

Anything with the Miracle-Gro label should be avoided entirely: Bagged potting soil and garden soil, ‘Shake n Feed,’ that blue stuff, and yes, even so-called “Organic” Miracle-Gro products. It’s a great place to start.

How often should I feed my indoor plants?

The majority of houseplants should be fed every second watering during the growing season, which lasts 10 to 14 days. In the autumn and winter, feed every fourth watering. Adding a small amount of water to the soil at the time of planting is a good way to feed houseplants.

Plants can be grown in containers, but they should not be planted directly in the ground as this can lead to root rot and other problems. The best place to plant a houseplant is in an area with good drainage and good air circulation.

How often should you fertilize indoor plants?

Every 2 weeks to once every 3 to 4 months is how long the application will last. Follow the label directions carefully. During the winter months, do not fertilize plants. Most houseplants don’t need to be fertilized in the winter. Fertilizer should be applied at least once a month. If the soil is dry, the fertilizer may not be effective.

Apply fertilizer in a well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight. Use a fertilizer with a high nitrogen content, such as 10-20% of the total nitrogen in the potting mix. Avoid using fertilizers that are high in phosphorous or potassium, as these nutrients can be harmful to the plant.
