Reviews


The best plant food I have ever used.  My African Violets are blooming like crazy, even one that has never bloomed before. Dyna-Gro is amazing!"

"Simply amazing products!  We have tested Dyna-Gro up against 7 different brands so far and Dyna-Gro Grow and Bloom ALWAYS seems to come out on top!  We have since switched to ALL Dyna-Gro products.” BioMatrixSystems

"Thank you for another summer of hibiscus plants with huge blooms and deep green glossy leaves!  Your products are just over the top and really deliver!"

"I really wish I took a photo of my plant before I tried this. This stuff came and I didn’t have any buds. Within 2 weeks it has many buds and I am amazed. Soo easy to use and a little goes a long way!!!." @lb_rice

 

 

Which plants?


BLOOM is for all plants that flower, produce fruit or vegetables. Orchids, Hoyas, African Violets, Gardenia, Begonias, Roses, Peace Lily, Cyclamen, Hibiscus, Tomatoes and more.  

 

Should I use GROW or BLOOM?


There are 2 approaches: 

Many hobbyists are 'one food, all year' feeders. For you, go with GROW for your flowering jungle members, all year round. Job done.

Other hobbyists take the approach of looking after plants to match their needs and  season, changing what you feed over the year. In general, you split your seasons in two, foliage and blooming. For you I'd follow the seasonal guide below.

PS: You 100% can use GROW or BLOOM by itself all year-round for flowering plants but for best results match your food to your plants needs. 

BLOOM is made for use during the bud to flowering stage. For best results start using BLOOM before plants shift into flowering phase. If you're unsure when that is, swap to BLOOM at the first sign of buds forming.

GROWING SEASON: When your flowering plant is in foliage not flower mode, go for GROW

BEFORE FLOWERING: Focus your plant's energy away from foliage and on to flowering. About 6 months before flowering, plants initiate bud formation. Before buds appear, shift from GROW to BLOOM.

FLOWERING: Go for BLOOM throughout flowering (same for during fruit and vegetable production). Stay on BLOOM until flowering / fruiting / food production has finished. Then shift back to GROW for the rest of the year. 


LEAFY VEGES
 For leafy veges like lettuce, kale and spinach, go for FOLIAGE-PRO


Why BLOOM?


BLOOM is a complete and balanced food. Urea free, so safe for potted, container and indoor plants to avoid mineral salt build-up and fertiliser burn. Also includes all-important calcium.   

BLOOM is a low nitrogen, high phosphorus formula. The NPK ratio is 3-12-6 (3 is Nitrogen, 12 is Phosphorus). Compare that to GROW 7-9-5 & Foliage Pro 9-3-6.

BLOOM's ratio focuses on flowers, fruit and vegetable production - away from stems and leaves - avoiding long, leggy, stretching stems and helping plant's produce big, healthy, long-lasting blooms. Keep feeding BLOOM all year round, or swap back to GROW after flowering, until bud formation starts again.

Keep in mind no food can force your plant to flower. That's caused by age, light, temperature and other factors most hobbyists don't have total control of. However too much nitrogen, or a lack of phosphorus can reduce bud and flower production. 

 

Why is Dyna-Gro different?


COMPLETE > Includes all 16 essential macro and micro-nutrients indoor plants need. A truly complete food. 

BALANCED > Nutrients balanced to avoid both deficiencies and excesses. 

NO UREA > Urea is what most fertilisers use as their nitrogen source. Fine for outdoors, where excess can leach away from roots. But for indoor plants? Urea can turn soil pH acidic, and cause root and leaf burn

CALCIUM! Most plant foods lack calcium - or levels are too low. Calcium can't move around your plant. If there's a deficiency when growing, there's a deficiency for life. Stunted growth, deformed leaves, weak stems, new growth rotting, black spots, yellow leaf edges. Plants need 1 to 3 x more calcium than phosphorus! BLOOM includes calcium at a level you don't need to supplement.


How to use BLOOM


For feeding every time you water for most plants: 1ml per 1.5 litres is general maintenance level. 
In winter, for slow-growers, or light-feeders: 1ml per 3 litres. For very fast growers and heavy feeders, up to: 1ml per 1 litre

Used at general maintenance level, the 310ml size makes over 465 litres!
