The Q&A Archives: feeding

Question: I have a bicolor dracaena, a dracaena massangeana, cactuses and an aloe plant, is there any good fertilizers that accomodate all of them to save me some money and time?

Answer: Your cacti and aloe can get by without regular feeding but if you want to feed, use a water soluable fertilizer such as Miracle Gro or Peter's. Dilute to half strength and use the mixture instead of a regular watering once every 4 weeks during the growing season. This will provide a nearly constant source of minerals and nutrients without the salt build up that might harm your plants. Best wishes with your plants.
