Reviews for Dyna-Gro GROW
"This stuff is amazing. My plants have grown so much. I am afraid to use it again quite frankly because they might grow to be 700 feet tall and attack the nearest major city. Will definitely purchase again. My plants are happier and healthier. Worked especially well on my begonia, which sprouted five new leaves with just one application." @ulysses_20
"I feed my African Violets with a low dosage. They love it and reward me with beautiful leaves and blooms. I highly recommend this fertilizer. Have used it for years." @sparkle_peck
"My orchids would never bloom until I started feeding them this plant food. Now I get loads of blooms every year. I love this product." @randy_p
"My houseplants do really well with this feed. My hoyas have put on so much growth and are so happy!" @murphy_mum
"I use this on ALL my plants and they love it! Succulents, cactus, palms, snake plants, monstera, pothos, nerve plants, dracaena, elephant ears. It's so easy to mix and you don't use much so a bottle lasts a while. My plants seem to perk up almost immediately when I give it to them!" @kindle_us_cu
Dyna-Gro GROW or Foliage Pro?
For indoor plants where foliage is your focus, both Grow and Foliage-Pro are suitable. For more specific needs however, here's what to consider...
GREEN BITS & BABIES: Higher nitrogen helps growing stems and leaves, especially for baby plants. Both formulas are high in nitrogen, but Foliage Pro provides extra nitrogen, making it the favourite for propagating cuttings and for seedlings. Popular with nurseries and growers as it gets plants out of greenhouses and in to stores much faster.
FLOWERS: For your flowering plants - Orchids, Hoyas, African Violets, Gardenia, Geranium, Begonias, Tulips, Peace Lily, Lilies, Cyclamen, Roses, Azalea, Bougainvillea - you want the lower nitrogen / higher phosphorus balance in GROW, for general maintenance and to set buds.
MIXED JUNGLE: If your jungle is a mix of foliage and flowering, but you want one food for everyone, go for GROW. If your jungle is only foliage plants - or a mix, but foliage not flowers matter more to you, go for Foliage Pro.
FERNS & NZ NATIVES / ROOT TYPE: The lower phosphorus in Foliage-Pro is the better choice for plants sensitive to Phosphorus, such as many ferns and NZ natives.
SUCCULENTS & BONSAI: Two families that GROW is particularly good for. In fact, Dyna-Gro Bonsai is identical to GROW in the bottle, just with a different label!
Why is Dyna-Gro different?
COMPLETE > All 16 essential macro and micro-nutrients indoor plants need. A truly complete plant food, not just 'NPK'.
BALANCED > Nutrients in the right balance to avoid both deficiencies and excesses. Prevents excess building-up in soil, reducing fertiliser burn.
NO UREA > Urea is what most fertilisers use as their nitrogen source. Fine for outdoors, where excess can leach away from precious roots. But for indoor plants? Best avoided. Urea can turn soil pH acidic, cause root and leaf burn.
CALCIUM! Most plant foods lack calcium at all, or levels are too low. Calcium can't move around your plant, so if there's a deficiency when growing new leaves and stems, there's a deficiency for life. Causing stunted growth, deformed leaves, weak stems, new growth rotting, black spots or yellow leaf edges. Plants need 1 to 3 times more calcium than phosphorus. GROW includes calcium.
Directions for use
Used at general maintenance dose, the 236ml size makes over 350 litres. Dose varies based on plant requirements and frequency. For feeding every time you water for the majority of plants: 1ml per 1.5 litres is for general maintenance.
In winter, for slow-growers and light feeders, drop down to 1ml per 3 litres. For fast growers and heavy feeders, use up to 1ml per 1 litre. For my African Violets and Hoya I use the 1ml per 3 litres dose.
Check the full Dyna-Gro GROW directions here > BEFORE first use, as it gives you the doses based on frequency, plus for hydro, leca, propagation, and foliar feeding.
"I've used it for all my Bonsai/Plants for 12 yrs. IMO it's the best." @ken_craver
"All I can say is amazing. This small bottle has turned my garden around from a few light green and yellow leaves to very lush dark green leaves. The best part is the explosive growth, incredible. Had to top em early and the side growth is just amazing. Full healthy plants. Try it, you will like it.." @c_J_us
"My orchids LOVE this fertilizer. The plants that were doing ok are now flourishing and ones that I had given up on are growing new roots! Great stuff!" @toniii
"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
