Miracle grow is not available in india. For what plants you want to use this, may be I can send you the fertilizer.

Dear GG 

 

I have  roses, jasmins,gardenia and few more flowring plants.I heard someone saying in DD Malayalam that miracle grow is the best fertlizer for flowering plants .Currently iam using vermicompost /turf supreme(16:6:8)/orchid boom ( foliar) ,

my observations are-

- healthy plants 

- roses doing okay (always there is one flower in each plant)

- Pentas and blue Plumbago are doing fine

- Gundu malli ( Jasmin) produced only one big flower ( size of a butten rose) this season

- Gardenia producing many buds which fall off later nearing to blooming stage

- Crysanthimum very green/lush without bud/flower

- same with clemantis

 

what can be the problem? Is sunlight not sufficient ? Mine is east facing balcony in second floor.

Hi,

 

Looks to me you are using a nitrogen rich fertilizer (16:8:8). Stopping that could help but but it would take time. Mostly, vermicompost is good enough.

 

Miracle gro is not available in India and is very rich in P, so promotes flowering.

 

Thanks

What you  can get in India is "Maxi Grow". It's made by Ratanshi Agro Hortitech and is usually available in stores that sell gardening supplies.

I use Maxi Grow once a week for flowering plants and once a fortnight for non-flowering plants, as advised by a person at an Indo-American nursery. This gets good results.

Bini,

Terraceroses is right(kvs). You are using a turf fertilizer used for lawns and turf which needs more nitrogen for lush growth. Using that for flowering is not recommended and will not be fruitful.

You can use MaxiGrow which is essentially 5-15-30. If you can't find it, you can get it from me. I have some stock for sale.

let me know.

Hi GG

I've visited ur store in Sep 2012, I hail from hyd, I've purchased Maxigrow sachets and using it occasionally (max gap of 10-15 days) for my dried jasmine plants and also for mint, sprouting glad's, for tulsi. Now I'm left with nly one sachet and would like to knw from where I can buy in Hyd? Do u knw any stores that sells Ratanshi's Maxigrow?? Do u suggest any other alternative fr this. Also I've used the potting mix (cocopeat+ compost) in 1:1 ratio, advise me on how long can it be used after planting.

Thanks

Krishna
