The following Worked on all 10 of the house plants .
Some plants showed positive results immediatly and some took 3 weeks .
I only did a single application and waited until all the plants showed positive results .
I did not apply the feed every day .
I would say feeding with the following ingredients once a month .
I feed the plants by shaking the ingredients mixed with water as a foliar/soil feed . I shake it onto the leaves and then half or most of the water + ingredients run down into the soil .
Because I had previously applied the water + ingredients only in soil , and not foliar , and had poor results , I can only think that the plants respond more to a foliar application than only a soil application . Perhaps the combination fo foliar/soil application works best because there is good fungi in the ingredients and perhaps good fungi grows in the soil if a foliar application happens in conjunction ,

I applied the ingredients and applied them to the 10 houseplants in the Piano Room about 1 month ago . I got good and waited one month before posting this method in this thread . Some plants responed right away , and some took a few weeks to respond ; but they all responded very good . The suclulant responded extremely well and swelled some and added a lot of new growth within a month . Keep in mind that when I applied this to the plant , that some of the liquid ran down into the soil . The plants I applied them two are grown in actual soil . I grow in Coco Coir . Either way I applied this method to my Hot Pepper Plants and Sunflowers today and I know they will really like it based on the 9 Houseplants universally liked it very much .

I take the following ingredients and add them to water and shake vigorously about 100 times before I apply it to plants .


The Plant Food Spikes by Miracle Gro ; I soak one stick in water until the water turns blue and use this as part of my shake everything foliar mix . But I don't use a whole stick into my Lazy Man's method . I use about 1/3 a stick worth in a liquid form .

Warning : MiracleGro Plant food has formaldehyde in it . I am in the process of changing to an organic general purpose plant food to add to the foliar feed mixture .

I use Wonder Soil throw some into the All in one shaker for my all in one foliar feed . I do not grow in Wonder Soil because the Coco Coir is cut too fine for my taste . I just extract the ingredients in the picture of Wonder Soil .The last photo on this post shows the Coco Coir I grow in . Anyway back to the post ; I extract the ingredients shown in the photo labeled Wonder Soil . The ingredients I extract are Mycorrhizzo , Kelp , Gypsum ,Magnesium , Rock Minerals , Humus , Organic Nutrients and Worm Castings and they become part of the water mixture that are shaked onto the plants .

First I fill the Garlic Powder Bottle , almost all of the way with water , and add all the ingredients
I sprinkle a few shakes of garlic powder into my Shaker Bottle to the water . P.S. ; I also use the Garlic Powder Container to apply my all in one foliar feed , because the Garlic container has a built in shaker in the red cap ; it has a bunch of holes on one side of the red cap.

Also ; Garlic Powder is also on of the Ingredients I add to the water .The Garlic seems to make my plants happy and it also has amino acid , so it probably chelates my minerals in the Wonder Soil Minerals to make the Minerals available to the leaves I foliar feed my all in one Lazy Man's foliar feed . ( P.S. ; My House Plants Love my Lazy Man's All in One Foliar Feed ) .

I use to use Wonder Soil to grow in but I now use Nutrifield Coco Mega Brick to grow in ; It is Calcium Pre Buffered , but not Magnesium PreBuffered ( Not mentioned on Label so I am just guessing it is not prebuffered with Magnesium . Nutrifield is a large hydroponics company in Austraila .

I do not put Nutrifield Coco Coir in my Lazy Man's all in one Shake on Foliar Feed . But I do grow in it . It has a coarser cut and gets more air to my roots than the finer cut Wonder Soil . The Nutrifield Dries Out Quicker and gets more air to the roots than Wonder Soil did when I use to use Wonder Soil to grow in . I just extract the ingredients in Wonder Soil , as Wonder Soil is Nutrient and Mineral fortified at their factory .

I just this morning started this method on my Hababero Peppers and Sunflowers .

After shaking onto plants ; some brown particles from the Wonder Soil stay on the leaves . I just leave the little particles of Wonder Soil on the leave so that the leaves can absorb the chelated minerals and worm castings ) . I would not rinse of particles on leafs . I would just leave them their ; as it worked very well on my 9 house plants to just leave the particles there to give the leaves a chance to absorb chelated Minerals .

One reason I am now applying this method to my Pepper Plants and Sunflowers is because I do have the knowledge to use Coco Coir and my roots don't seem to be getting nutrients into plant very well ; probably because I do not understand how to use Coco properly ; so I am forced to feed my plants everything mixed together in a Lazy Man's all in one Foliar Shake . Think of it as the Garden of Eden raining everything a plant needs ; and the Garden of Eden Soil has no nutrients in it . It just rains everything a plant needs . A nice theory to justify my Lazy Man's All in one Shake method .

Works really great on the 9 house plants in the piano room .

P.S. I also add a tiny bit of powdered Amino Acids to help Chelate the Minerals and increase Calcuim uptake . I also add a tiny bit of Calcium - Magnesium , Just in case I need Water Soluble Calcium and water soluble Magnesium .

Peppers grow really well in coco fed runoff from my Cannabis grow daily. I don't check the EC for peppers I just make sure PH is 6.
The large pepper plant was in 1/2 gallon container until a couple days ago.
Coco is fairly easy, feed daily or every other day, low EC, 6.0PH, never let it dry out.
Also, if your coco grows are outside, rain can/will flush nutes out of it.
That said, all in my coco is anywhere from 2-6 yrs old, is full of old roots, and has been re-used many, many times.

P.S. The Garlic Jar I use as a shaker leaks when I shake the ingredients . To fix this , take some plastic or teflon tape and wrap it around the treads that the cap screws onto , Now you can fill the Garlic Jar with water and add all the indredients and shake it as hard as you want , and it won't leak .
P.S.S After shaking the ingredients really well . let it settle for a few mintues . Then scoop out the Coco Coir that originates from the Wonder Soil so that when you skake the ingredients onto the plants , you won't be shaking Coco Coir onto your plants or into your soil . By scooping out the Wonder Soil Coco Coir from the top of the Garlic Powder Container , you will be left with the extracted ingredients from the Wonder Soil . Now you can shake the extracted ingredients onto your plants , I also add some General Organic Plant Food into the ingredients and either some Garlic Powder or some Powdered Amino Acids so that the Minerals will get Chelated ; meaning they are more soluble through the leafs and roots , Make sure you not only shake it onto the leafs , but also shake some onto the grow medium . Later on , the next day you can water the plants some if you plants can handle being watered enough to make the ingredients work down through the medium , further down .

Hi . My PH meter is no good quality . My tap water has a high PH , but I let it sit for a day , and when the Chlorine evaporates , I think the PH goes down a point . I also add some Urea Nitrogen to my foliar feed and grown medium feed , because I read somewhere that Urea is an acid and lowers the PH . My plants don't like Vinegar as a PH down . First I need to buy a good PH meter and see what the runoff reads from my grown medium after watering . Your Grow Room looks nice . Like your slighty tall plants .
