Customer Questions & Answers

Would a Pitcher Plant benefit from fertilizing? What kind?

I have a pitcher plant
Asked by: Jan
You have to be really careful with pitcher plants and carnivorous plants in general as they thrive in poor soil. If a plant is doing poorly the best thing to do would be hand feeding, only insects never anything like hamburger which is much too high in fat, if that is not possible a high nitrogen fertilizer diluted by half applied directly to the pitchers might help. I know this is really old, but I'm going to answer in case it helps anyone anyway.

Customer Reviews

Water-Soluble 8 oz. Orchid Plant Food is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Educate yourself first. We have used this product for a year and managed to kill one orchid and almost kill another one. Do the research, Orchids, Bromeliads, and Tillandsias (air plants) do not get their nitrogen from the soil. They need ammoniacal and nitrate nitrogen. This product has only 3.0% of that and 27% of Urea Nitrogen. For a plant to use urea nitrogen it needs the bacteria in soil to break down the urea nitrogen. These plants do not use soil for that. Orchids are a type of "air plant". That being said, I am not condemning the Miracle-Gro product line. For vegetables, tomatoes, outdoor plants, house plants, Miracle-Gro makes very great products, fertilizers, plant food. We are in our late 60's and have been using Miracle-Gro for over 30 years with great success, as a matter of fact it is the only thing we feed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixing difficult for small quantities of plants I guess it works but I find it cumbersome to use if you only have one or two orchids. The instructions say to "mix 1/4 teaspoon of Miracle-Gro® Water Soluble Orchid Food for every gallon or water and apply every 2 weeks during active growth periods." For a small number of plants, I never need a gallon of mix, and for smaller quantities it is difficult to measure less than 1/4 teaspoon. In the summer, not too much of an issue as I dump the excess on other plants, but in winter many other plants are dormant and do not need "ffeding".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Complete Product- includes the little details for great use The fertilizer itself is effective, and a little goes a long way. What makes this a great product is that it comes with a measuring spoon, an easy open bag, and a twist tie to close the bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My orchids are happy I have been using this product every week feeding my 29 orchids and they are happy! Everyone is thriving and blooms are healthy. 1/4 tsp in a gallon water. I use filtered water rather than tab water, for we have hard water I thought I wouldn't be good for these delicate plants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good results I have the most beautiful orchid. People who come over ask how Do you get it to bloom. I say miracle grow of course. I use spray for leafs on plants And miracle grow for indoor plants. I love it. Can't expect nice plants and blooms Without miracle grow. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product I've only been using the product for a month or so and it seems to be working. Orchids don't need to watered often so it will last forever. I like how you dissolve only one teaspoon in a whole gallon of water so the seemingly little box goes actually quite far. I'm not sure if it will actually make my orchids bloom better as I haven't used it for long enough yet but I'll post updates!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Killed all of my orchids Used this product on my 22 orchids of varying sizes, that I owned for over a year, and within a week All 22 were dead. The roots rotted and the soil smelled like straight ammonia. I will not recommend this product, girl I ever use it again.
