SUPERthrive GROW 7-9-5, is an all-purpose, nutritionally complete, formula that promotes both foliage and bloom growth containing all 6 essential macronutrients and all 10 essential micronutrients that every plant needs. The N-P-K ratio of GROW supplies a high nitrate to ammoniacal nitrogen ratio this will promote shorter internodal spacing resulting in stronger stems and ensuring healthy leaf and stem growth in your house plants. You can also use GROW on your vegetables, fruit trees, and landscaped gardens. GROW is a complete solution and is ideal for poor, rocky soils, hydroponics and container-grown plants.
GROW is Urea free and won’t burn your plant’s roots and contains sufficient levels of calcium, there is no need to supplement with calcium also contains special pH buffers to help maintain a desirable pH preferable to house plants. SUPERthrive GROW or SUPERthrive 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 SUPERthrive 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 SUPERthrive GROW can help, with the lower nitrogen and higher phosphorus it will keep the foliage healthy and help the plant bud and flower. Use SUPERthrive 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 SUPERthrive 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 SUPERthrive 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 SUPERthrive 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.
SUPERthrive 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 SUPERthrive 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.
