The Home Plant Co Plant Food Soil Activator


Made locally by The Home Plant Co. Try this soil activator spray in conjunction with our potting mix and watch your plants grow!

The Plant Co beneficial bacteria plant food leverages multiple biological pathways and increases the efficiency of these natural biological processes to enhance plant performance. It comprises of unique naturally occurring organisms and their metabolites which are produced in proprietary multi-phase fermentation processes.

  • Increases available nutrients in the soil
  • Improves plant vigour
  • Enhances root development
  • Adds and stimulates beneficial soil biology
  • Restores soil fertility
  • Reduces crop water stress
  • Reduces fertiliser leaching and runoff.
  • Can aid in converting ammonium to nitrate allowing more potential for plant to absorb nutrients in cooler weather.
  • Applied in conjunction with fertilisers allows better plant uptake of those nutrients.
  • Add 1 teaspoon or 5 grams to a 4lt watering can or 2 teaspoons or 10g to a 9lt watering can and give it a good drench without overdoing it to avoid excess leaching.

Apply to potting soil or soil of garden beds. It is eco-friendly and can be applied after planting or for maintenance while plant is in a pot, ground or fully established.

Allow the biology to sit in water for up to 30mins and shake well before applying it to the soil and plants so it activates or “wakes up”

Repeat every 2-4 weeks.

General plant care tips

Just like us, plants get hungry! To really nurture your plants you will need to feed them some food. A balanced fertiliser, or 'plant food' will provide houseplants with all the nutrients they need to stay strong and encourage new growth. You can find some great plant products in our Plant Care collection. We particularly love this plant food from The Plant Runner, and the seaweed tonic by Munash Organics.

During the warmer months when plants are actively growing they'll need a bit more food and water. During the cooler winter months plants generally slow their growing and won't need as much to eat or drink.
