A coworker insists that the only ferterlizer she uses on her house plants and container plants is spoiled milk. Is this possible? Her plants are so lush.

Anything is possible? There are many home recipes for houseplant care, so apparently this is yet another. In my experience they seem to do best with a good soil mix, a mineral-rich water and some compost and/or houseplant fertilizer from time to time. All that, combined with the right lighting, the proper draining mix, a good watering routine and well-timed repotting should do the trick. I suspect she may be following all the steps I have mentioned with the exception of the fertilizer.
