How to feed your plants

Your plants will get hungry and naturally just like us, they will show signs of needing some wholesome food to hit the right spot. We grow all of our plants at the Wilde House greenhouses which ensures super tight quality control when it comes to propagating, growing and shipping our green babes to you.

We feed all of our indoor plants with CRF (Controlled Release Fertiliser) 12 - 14 month release with trace elements, meaning that your plant will arrive healthy, lush and jam-packed with all the good nutrients it needs to thrive and survive in your home. All of our houseplants can be fed seasonally, therefore we suggest refreshing your plants feed every spring with a slow-release fertiliser (this can be in liquid form or granular slow release pellets).
