“Can I use black gold fertilizer on my houseplants? ( 5 5 5 ) Any plants I should feed like ferns, orchids, African violets, etc?” Question from Gayle of New York
Answer: Black Gold Fertilizers are only available in Canada. You can certainly use our granular, Black Gold All-Purpose Fertilizer on house plants if you can find it in the states. Otherwise, we recommend that you try Proven Winners Premium Continuous-Release Plant Food and Proven Winners Premium Water Soluble Plant Food as an all-purpose fertilizer for feeding house plants. They are particularly recommended for flowering house plants. Our parent company, Sun Gro Horticulture, makes these products, so we can vouch for its quality and performance. Follow the product directions for application rates. From there, here are further resources for house plant care.
