I am a city gardner in zone 5/6. Dramatic temp swings in this area with cold winters, and hot summers. Love to grow my own fruit and veggies!

Anybody know what fertising means in plant task? I have no idea how to fertise my polka dot plant. # newgrowth #poppy

5w
comment
Acetaker

@saco The task is referring to when u water your Polka-dot Plant,using a mixture,as in miracle grow,that u place in water. On an average I do mine about every 2 weeks. But, I have placed mine outside on the bk deck with it getting a bit of the wonderful morning sun🌞 CHECK your soil though and if it's NOT dried out enough,WAIT til you know when it ready. 😊Hope this helps

5w
comment
saco

So its liquid fertilising @Acetaker

5w
comment
Acetaker

@saco Yes, but do mix with water per ratio on box. I usually get the small box and use the spoon,largest side, and mix with water in my gallon watering can.

I haven't tried it yet. I have degenerative disk disease, osteoarthritis, pinched nerves and a straightening of my cervical spine, along with spondylolisthesis of my L5-s1. My Dr's have me on heavy narcotics and muscle relaxants which are very addictive.

@zelda422 oh no, hope all is well. I feel that pain pills are the precursor to illegal opiate abuse, and hope you find a natural treatment for all that ails you. Anything mother nature prescribes is better than what md's can.

Thank you Saco. I'm only 45. With 2 children still at home. I have 4 children ages 9, 13, 21 and 23. My 9 year old son is autistic and takes all of my energy lol. It takes everything I have just to run the house hold and keep everything on track. I'm always looking for a new plant that might work. I just bought white willow bark. I use passion flower for muscle relaxer and valerian root for pain (but the smell😲)

@zelda422 God bless you, that's a full load you are carrying for sure. I work with autistic children in the educational setting, I can understand some of your difficulties. Hope all goes really well for you, try to have a great day.

@zelda422 have you tried CBD oil? Do you live in a medicinal marijuana state? CBD has the narcotic effect eliminated. Works only on pain. No high

@lesliecole49 yes I do now that cali has made it legal. My elderly neighbor makes her own rub and yes it is a miracle but you do end up smelling like you just rolled around in a marajana plant.
