Question about fertilizers for my flowering plants

Posted by heidiho St. Martinville L (My Page) on

I have several potted plants and they all call for different fertilizers.
ex: my peace lily needs 20-20-20; the plumeria needs 10-50-10 and so on.
I'm living on limited income and would like to buy just one or two types of fertilizer for most of my flowered plants and still get good results with blooms.
Is this possible?
Thanks for your time and have a nice day.

I like to use time-released fertilizers ... either general purpose or for bloomers.

Scotts makes both Osmocote and Miracle-Gro.

Thanks so much. I will try the time release.

I'm trying some Fish Emulsion (Fertilome) this spring. It's very safe on plants & helps green things up. I also like the time release. It's good for those senior moments when I can't remember when I fed them. : ))
