Plantsmith’s complete care kit contains everything you need to feed and protect your indoor plants; our Fortifying Houseplant Tonic to nourish and boost growth, alongside our Perfecting Houseplant Mist to revitalise and protect.
Plantsmith Fortifying Houseplant Tonic (500ml):
Unlike outdoor plants, houseplants are completely reliant on us to keep them well fed. Although they arrive in compost that contains low levels of fertiliser, these nutrients are quickly used up.
Inspired by formulations used by the professionals, our Fortifying Houseplant Tonic contains 13 perfectly balanced essential nutrients designed to encourage strong, glossy leaves and the growth of longer lasting flowers.
It’s best to feed houseplants regularly during their growing season, which runs from March to September. During this time, feed with our Fortifying Tonic every other time you water your indoor plants. Using it couldn’t be easier, simply shake the bottle well and mix 5 ml (approx. 4 pumps) into a litre of tepid water and apply at the base of the plant. For younger plants mix the same amount into 2 litres of water.
Always make sure that your plants are not sat in water, as this will rot the roots and kill the plants. Come back and check 15 minutes after watering and pour away any excess pooled water.
Plantsmith Perfecting Houseplant Mist (500ml):
Most of our favourite houseplants originally come from tropical climates, where they flourish in humid conditions. Our warm, dry homes cause them to lose moisture quickly and can cause leaves to wilt and crisp, or flower buds to drop before opening.
Our perfecting houseplant care mist combines 17 essential ingredients to promote good health with every spray. The soft mist creates an ideal humid atmosphere and contains kelp extract and humic acid to stimulate growth as well as lavender and avocado oils to deter pests.
To use, shake the bottle well, and then mist the leaves until it looks like a fine dew has settled on them and then gently spritz the top of the compost to moisten it. Take care to avoid directly spraying flowers as excessive moisture can upset them.
Aim to mist 2 to 3 times each week, year round.
