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

MIST OR SPRAY

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.

SOIL FLUSH

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.

FREQUENCY

Use Groconut for every second watering for best results.

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.
