Fertilizing your bamboo plants will not only make an impressive difference in growth, it is necessary for the plant's health to survive in some cases. These are the fertilizers we recommend and have made them available for purchase to our customers. With over 20 years in the nursery business we have been exposed to many types of fertilizer and soil additives. Fertilizers are valued by the primary growth elements N-P-K. These letters represent nitrogen(N), phosphorus(P), and potassium(K). Potassium is also commonly referred to as potash. Nitrogen is the primary element in a plant's health and is the element for growth. The second value is phosphorus. Phosphorus assists in the transfer of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are essential for the plant to store nourishment in the roots. The last letter is potassium. Potassium helps with photosynthesis and the plant’s metabolism. All our fertilizers are high in micro-nutrients too.
