Tropical plants have evolved in areas with high rainfall and rich soils so it’s important to replicate these conditions where possible. Start by mixing Yates Waterwise Water Storage Crystals into the soil before planting. Keep a layer of organic mulch around the plants and fertilise every month while the growing weather’s still good.
Dynamic Lifter pellets are perfect for feeding tropical plants. Because they’re organic they encourage soil to function at its best. Potted plants and orchids will benefit from regular applications of the liquid form of Dynamic Lifter because it produces such quick results.
Pests and tropical plants go together. Use Nature’s Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray to control common insect pests such as mealybug and scale. Yates Natrasoap is a non toxic solution for many common garden problems, including the almost invisible sap-sucking mites.
