NPK 27 Humus is an organic fertiliser made from organic plant waste that is used to promote overall growth in crops, garden plants, ornamental plants and house plants. Humus fertilisers also help condition and reduce pH levels in the soil.
Nitrogen (N) - 8%
Phosphorous (P) - 8%
Potassium (K) - 8%
Humic acid increases nutrient uptake, drought tolerance, and seed germination. It also stimulates roots by increasing the microbial activity in the soil. Humic acid also increases the availability of nutrients when added to new or existing fertilisers in the soil. It also helps to lower the pH of the soil to a more neutral level and will flush high levels of salts out of the root zone, all of which will help to promote better plant health and growth!
What is NPK?
The three main numbers on fertiliser packaging represents the value of the three major macro-nutrients used by plants. They are Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P), and Potassium (K).
Nitrogen (N) - Nitrogen is largely responsible for the growth of leaves on the plant.
Phosphorus (P) - Phosphorus is largely responsible for root growth and flower and fruit development.
Potassium (K) - Potassium is a nutrient that helps the overall functions of the plant perform correctly.
Knowing the NPK values of a fertiliser will help you make an informed decision on which to choose for your plants. If you want to fertiliser flowering plants, it would benefit from a fertiliser with higher Phosphorous values. Alternatively, for leafy plants, you would want more Nitrogen in your fertiliser.
Sprinkle onto soil around plant stems and water immediately. Apply the following amounts once every 2-3 weeks.
- Small Potted Plants - 1/2 to 1 Teaspoon
- Big Potted Plants - 1 to 2 Tablespoons
- Young Tree - 1 to 2 Tablespoons
- Big Tree - 2 to 4 Tablespoons
