Whether you are growing indoors or out, fertilizer is essential to the success of container gardens. The easiest way to go about fertilizing potted plants is by preparing a nutrient solution and pouring it over the soil mix. The fertilizer is absorbed by the roots and quickly adds what is missing from the existing soil. Even if your potting mix is perfect from the get-go, it will soon become depleted of nutrients as they are constantly used up by plants and leached out by watering. The faster a plant grows the more fertilizer and water it will require.
Container plants should be grown in a special potting mix that doesn’t contain soil. Garden soil is too heavy and may compact roots, cutting off their oxygen. It also often contains weed seeds.
Make or buy a soilless mix — one composed of peat moss or coconut fiber (coir), vermiculite or perlite, and other ingredients. A lightweight soil for potted plants needs to provide good drainage, hold moisture, and give roots room to grow.
