⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Ready to level up your plant care game? Wondering what the serious hobbyists and planty-instagrammers use to get such wow-worthy foliage? GT is for you. But if the rave reviews aren't enough to convince you, and you prefer to 'see it to believe it' before you commit to the bigger 1 litre size, this 250ml pack was made for you. 250mls makes over 80 litres diluted. One free 5ml pipette included with every GT order (the 1 litre size is a huge saving per ml though).


Which plants is GT Foliage Focus for?



This formula focuses your plant's energy on growing healthier, stronger, bigger, more lush foliage. A favourite for aroids in particular but formulated for all indoor plants where foliage is your focus. Popular for Monstera, Philodendron, Epipremnum, FicusScindapsus, Pothos, ZZSyngonium... the list goes on! A favourite for variegated plants in particular, with their higher sensitivity to fertiliser salts, slower growth rate and increased risk of fertiliser burn. 


Why GT?


Growth Technology are known in the industry as GT. The clever chaps behind world-famous Clonex. GT also created the specialist crop-specific nutrient range for indoor plants called GT Focus, each tailored to match a plant's specific nutrient needs. Although every GT formula is different, there are some things that stay the same...  


Calcium

 

Calcium is essential, yet most fertilisers don't include it. Common signs of a calcium deficiency include cracked, split, cupping or curling leaves; slow, stunted or deformed growth, and buds that fall off before plants flower (such as bud blast in Orchids and Hoyas). All GT formulas include calcium, immediately available to plants. No guesswork needed with supplements. No human foods to attract Fungus Gnats or take ages to break down. 

 

Free of Urea


The most common nitrogen source used in outdoor and indoor plant fertilisers, but urea is more difficult for indoor plants in soil-less potting mixes to convert into the life-giving nitrogen they need. Excess urea can accumulate in potted plants, increasing the risk of fertiliser burn. All GT formulas are guaranteed urea free. 


No Chlorides


The highest salt index common ingredient used in most fertilisers, increasing the risk of fertiliser burn. Excess can cause scorched leaf edges, smaller leaves and slow or stunted growth. All GT formulas are guaranteed chloride free.


Complete + Balanced


Most fertilisers provide NPK only. Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K). 'The Big 3' plants need the most of, but not all 12 nutrients a plant needs. If one is too low or missing (even if it's one plants only need small amounts of), our plants can't take in all the other available nutrients, until the one it needs the least of is provided, at the time they need it. That's why a complete fertiliser is so important. 


Check the label. GT provides all 12 essential nutrients. As GT are crop-specific, you won't find nickel (for cereal crops like barley and legumes), cobalt (also for legumes like peas), or sodium (for C4 plants like spinach) on the label. Not essential, and known phytotoxins for indoor plants, even in small amounts. All GT formulas are complete and balanced. Providing only what your plants need, and nothing they don't. Guaranteed no sodium.


pH Buffered


Most of our favourite indoor plants come from warm, humid habitats where their substrate pH is naturally more acidic. Soil pH matters. Too acidic or too alkaline and some nutrients become toxic while others like calcium and phosphorus become unavailable. GT is pH buffered to 6 once diluted. Slightly acidic, right where tropical-loving indoor plants prefer, and where nutrients become the most available, helping avoid both deficiencies and toxic levels. All GT formulas are pH buffered.


Chelated Minerals


Pronounced 'key-lay-ted' (like a key unlocking a door). Chelating minerals 'unlocks' the essential metal nutrients such as iron and zinc. Metal nutrients can react in the soil, turning them into solids plants can't use, causing deficiencies even if your fertiliser is complete. Chelation adds organic molecules to protect precious metals, keeping them water-soluble and available to your plants. All metal nutrients in GT are chelated.


Directions for Use


General maintenance

For hydro and semi-hydro: 5 to 7 mls per 1 litre water. For soil / potting mix: 3 to 5mls (1 teaspoon), per 1 litre water, every time you water (the 'weakly weekly' method). 

Adjust your dilution rate according to your plant's needs: For a mixed jungle use the general maintenance dose. For light feeders / slow growers: dilute 3mls per 1 litre water. For heavy feeders / fast growers dilute up to 10mls (2 teaspoons) per 1 litre water.

To avoid irreversible deficiencies in immobile nutrients (such as calcium), it's recommended to fertilise with GT Focus every time you water.  

 

Foliage Focus is also available in 1 litre size here > for $25 (that's a whopping 58% saving per ml compared to the 250ml size)

I saw this product on Facebook and thought I would try it as my monstera hadn’t grown a new leaf for about 4 months. I had also just recently repotted my 5 foot monstera adansonii and I was worried I might have killed it. Anyway, I watered them with the Foliage Focus and I have to say I was surprised but a new leaf started growing within one week and the repotted one looks better. I will be recommending this to others and next time I will buy the big bottle.
