Dyna Gro Foliage Pro 9-3-6 is a complete nutrition formula that has all 6 essential macronutrients and all 10 essential micronutrients required by plants for optimum growth in any medium. The N-P-K (3-1-2) ratio is recommended by the National Rose Society, the University of Florida and a number of other plant specialists and organizations. This N-P-K ratio is the ideal ratio for most plants including, but not limited to; roses, tropicals and legumes. Foliage Pro is complete and balanced and, like all our complete formulae, the minerals are in solution and immediately available to the plant.
The N-P-K ratio of Foliage Pro is also ideal for phosphorous sensitive plants and supplies a high nitrate to ammoniacal nitrogen ratio needed to promote shorter internodal spacing resulting in stronger stems. The immediate availability to the plant, with our exclusive complete solutions, gives the grower optimum control with timing in a feeding schedule. Foliage Pro and all other Dyna Gro products are urea free and are formulated to eliminate salt build-up when used at recommended rates. Foliage-Pro should primarily be used as a root drench but may be applied as a foliar spray at lower concentrations for a quick fix of many mineral deficiencies.
Foliage Pro is designed to deliver rapid vegetative growth with all the natural and essential macro and micro mineral elements in one, concentrated formula.
Levels of trace elements have been adjusted to meet the specific needs of plants.
The high nitrate to ammoniacal nitrogen ratio acts to produce shorter internodal spacing for stronger stems.
Foliage Pro outperforms all other products in both artificial and natural light conditions.
This unique formulation eliminates salt build-up and can be used in all growing media and irrigation systems.
Has rich levels of calcium and magnesium (the ideal 4:1 ratio), which eliminates the need to supplement with a Cal-Mag product.
Contains special pH buffers to help maintain a desirable pH.
Foliage Pro is primarily intended for root zone applications but may also be applied foliar at a dilution rate of 1:3000.
Because the minerals in Foliage Pro are already in solution, they are immediately available to the plant.
Healthy and tough stem, branch, and foliage structure to support heavy buds.
Foliage Pro will supply a balanced quantity of all minerals a plant requires, directly to the root system. Ordinary fertilisers and soilless media force plants to grow an extensive root system to futilely search for nutrients.
Foliage Pro was originally developed for use with soilless growing media rock wool, peat, vermiculite and others, it will not harm the microbiology of the soil. When applied to the soil, Foliage Pro acts as a supplementary source of minerals.
Dyna-Gro GROW or Dyna-Gro Foliage Pro?
Both fertilisers are suitable for your house plants, they both contain all 6 essential macro and 10 micronutrients. The differences are the levels of these nutrients.
If you are FOLIAGE FOCUSED: Higher nitrogen helps grow stems and leaves, especially for baby plants. While both formulas are high in nitrogen, Foliage Pro provides an extra amount of nitrogen, making it the better option for leaf and stem growth. Foliage Pro would also be the better option for propagating cuttings and for seedlings. We recommend Foliage Pro over Dyna-Gro GROW for phosphorus sensitive plants like many ferns and New Zealand natives.
If you are FLOWER FOCUSED: You may have some foliage plants that occasionally flower but aren’t really brought for their flower, this is when Dyna-Gro GROW can help, with the lower nitrogen and higher phosphorus it will keep the foliage healthy and help the plant bud and flower. Use Dyna-Gro Orchid Pro when your Orchid is about to bud and flower (safe to use instead of GROW while flower focused plants are in bloom.
MIXED / BOTH PLANTS: If you have a balanced mix of both flowering and foliage and you want a one-and-done we would recommend Dyna-Gro GROW to cover all your bases. This will give your plants the nutrients they both need with the higher photosynthesis to help your flowering plants in spring and summer. If you have foliage focused plants and flowering plants but you’re not worried about whether they flower or not go with Dyna-Gro Foliage Pro. You can absolutely use both fertilisers depending on the flowering season and whether you are focusing on foliage or flowering, this lets you have a controlled and tailored fertiliser for your plant collection.
Why is Dyna-Gro different to other cheaper fertilisers?
There are a couple of reasons; the first being NO UREA. Urea is a cheap alternative for nitrogen and is often used in other fertiliser options. Urea is not ideal for house plants or container plants as overuse can cause root and leaf burn. Dyna-Gro is a complete plant food fertiliser containing all 16 essential macro and micro-nutrients plants need. while other fertilisers may contain a similar NPK to Dyna-gro not all contain the essential nutrients to grow strong healthy plants. If you are keeping house plants it’s important to give back what your plants are missing by taking them from their natural environments, a balanced fertiliser will avoid having house plants that look unhealthy and sick due to deficiencies or excess in certain nutrient build-up.
