Advantages: It works!
Disadvantages: Can't think of any
I love plants, problem is I'm useless with them. I tend to over water them, or forget completely. I wonder if my fingers are destined to never be green! Good job I don't have kids! I used to live in a flat with very little natural light, which of course is bad for plants and their photosynthesising. I understood why my plants were dying then, but where I live now, I have everything a plant should need - but they still suffered. That was until I got some plant food to give them a helping hand.
Baby Bio is a plant food product, in liquid form, that you add to water, for when you water your plants. It's not suitable for all plants, but I've been quite liberal when following the instruction on which type of plants to feed, and haven't come a cropper...yet. The liquid is very dark, almost black, and all it takes is a few drops per pint of water. The dilution gives the plants enough nutrition to keep it healthy. It includes seaweed and humus (not the dip for your pitta!) as well as other trace minerals.
I had a pot of 3 money plants, and in about 4 weeks, 2 had died, and the 3rd was was looking ropey. Frustrated as I was, a took a trip to the garden centre and bought a small 175ml bottle, which cost me just around £3. Money plants are tricky, as you're not supposed to water them that much as they like warmer conditions (bit like a cactus), but anyway, I gave it some baby bio and it's been as good as gold! The leaves are bright and juicy looking, and the plant looks and feels strong, with new leaves and shoots sprouting - very happy, and quite in awe of this mystifying food nectar. I tend to use the dilution once a month, and as of yet, not experienced any nasty looking symptoms in my foliage - touch wood.
As you need to use so little, the food lasts a very long time. I bought mine back in September, and it looks like I've hardly used it - to be fair, I only have about 4 plants in the house, so if you have a huge array of plant life to feed, you would use it up quicker, obviously. It goes without saying that the liquid should be kept away from kids and pets. The bottle has a handy security cap, which means you have to push it down, to screw it off - but regardless, it's always best to keep it out of the way, and out of direct sunlight too for that matter.
I would recommend this to anyone looking to give their house plants a boost. It's been recommended that you don't use these outside in the garden - assumedly for the wildlife that could come along and eat the food - this stuff is not good for anyone to ingest! I'm glad I found Baby Bio and will continue to use it forever more, to keep my plants as my pride and joy!
Thanks for reading :)
