Fertilizer: Organic fertilizer, e.i. manue, is the best for the environment. But not always the easiest to find or the most pleasant of smells. The next best is liquid orgainc fertilizers. Plants can absorb this type of fertilizer in both their roots and leaves. Then comes liquid chemical fertilizers and gradular, slow release fertilizers. All liquid fertilizers are applied through the watering process and need to be done once a week during the growing season. While slow release fertilizer is placed around the plants roots and is released with each watering and with high temperatures. Slow release is added to the growing medium once every three months in the growing season for optimal. No matter how great your plants are when you plant them, if you forget to add fertilizer to your plants, your plants will never get to their optimum growth.
