Is there anything I can do more for my plant
This is my heart leaf philo and he is growing so fast! Tons of new growth but I don’t know if I should fertilise him or how often I should water him. Any tips please??
Plant looks great. If you used store brought potting mix the do have normally 6mth slow release fertilizer. Worm castings on top of soil is a nice natural fertilizer or you can use one that you add to the water but maybe use 1/2 dose every time or every second time you water if your unsure if the soil has a slow release one or not. If you noticed leaves browning the sign you may be overdoing it. You can use the app to give you a indication of watering but always check the soil and if the top 25-50% seems dry then water. Watering always depends on the local condition and the soil you’re using.
Thanks! Will do :)
As far as watering, I recommend to check the soil with a finger. Once the first inch or so of soil is dry it’s likely time to water again.
Thanks for the tip!
