Groconut Directions - How to Use

Groconut can be used for misting foliage, to make liquid fertiliser mixed with water, for hydro and leca, for propagation, and for repotting and transplanting. You can also complement your existing fertilising routine by adding groconut (just reduce the dosage to maximum 1/4 teaspoon per 1 litre). Here's the dosage and application for each use... 

Groconut for potted and indoor plants, as a foliage spray or nutrient flush


Use from 1 quarter of a teaspoon, to 1 teaspoon of Groconut per 1 litre of water* in a mist or spray bottle for a foliage spray. Use fresh.

If you also use an NPK or other fertiliser, go for the 1/4 teaspoon dose.


Use from 1 quarter to 1 teaspoon of Groconut per 1 litre of water for a soil flush when used as liquid fertiliser. Use fresh.


Use Groconut for every second watering for best results. 

Groconut for Propagation

Mix 1 teaspoon of Groconut per 1 litre of water* for use in propagation. Mix in well and leave cutting in solution for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Do not leave the cutting in the solution for longer than 1 hour. Discard used solution and put the cutting in your choice of growth medium such as soil. 

Groconut for Hydro and Leca

Mix a quarter of a teaspoon of Groconut per 1 litre of water* Leave for 6 to 12 hours. Discard solution and replace with fresh water after 6-12 hours. 

Groconut for Transplanting and Re-potting

To reduce / prevent the effects on transplant shock: Mix 1 teaspoon of Groconut per 1 litre of quality new soil medium when re-potting.




Don't be daft (user warning from Love That Leaf)

Groconut is like a water magnet. Always, always use 100% dry stuff for anything that will be in contact with your Groconut powder. If you get the powder wet in the pouch, it'll be like when you remember that milo you forgot you had in the pantry, and it'll have gone solid next time you go to use it. 

Luckily the one time we got caught out it was right at the very bottom of the pouch, plus it was still a bit soft so we mixed the lump with a little warm water to dissolve it, then mixed it in as usual. Best avoided though! 

Store completely sealed, ideally in your fridge, or if that's not possible, in a cool, dry place out of light and away from moisture. 

*Mixing with distilled or rain water is always advised. Tap water may contain chemicals that may alter the biological and chemical integrity. Make fresh and use only as needed.

The good news is Monstera Thai Constellation are surprisingly easy care with a few simple considerations. Well. Simple once you know them. It's also scarily easy to up and kill them with kindness, or what you think is the right thing to do, especially if you haven't owned a Monstera before. And no, they aren't exactly the same care as your trusty Monstera Deliciosa, but they're close. Here's what to do - and not to do...
