Is humic acid beneficial for container citrus and gardenias?

meyermike_1micha(5)November 5, 2008

Has anyone ever heard of humic acid for plants? It is very dark and you add it to water and it is suppose to be very good for any plants in soil. Does anyone know if this stuff benefits containerized plants also? Does it serve a purpose for plants in soiless medium,especially for gardenias and citrus or would I be wasting my time using this stuff. Should I use it for the plants in the great outdoors only?

Does anyone have sucess using this stuff in containerized houseplants?

I heard it is suppose to make soilless media healthy and help in aid of nutrient uptake for plants.

Thanks in advance everyone!
