FERTILISER, PLANT FOOD, SOIL CONDITIONER
Fertilise monthly in spring and summer to encourage growth and NONE in winter. In the colder months, this plant generally hibernates. Therefore, feeding with fertiliser won’t make it do much.
We use Munash organics with our plants and kokedamas as their products are gentle to the plants, plus they are ORGANIC! With the plant food, every 2 months is all you need to do.
Soil conditioners such as Seasol, is also good to use during the growth season. Therefore, using it fortnightly when you water the plant is also good.
