Houseplants Alive!® Houseplant Fertilizer

Before you throw your tired old houseplants on the compost heap, try Houseplants Alive! This new and improved formula provides nutrients that indoor plants need to thrive without the stinky ingredients found in other formulas. Houseplants Alive! contains both fast and slow-release nutrients and will require less applications than synthetic fertilizers. Our fertilizer will keep the container soil healthier, which could ultimately mean less repotting and buying less replacement soil. Just like all of our Alive! fertilizers, Houseplants Alive! contains our key-5 ingredients within it's formula—humic acid, molasses, Azomite, kelp meal, and alfalfa meal. Check out some of the benefits below:

  • Humic Acid is great for aerating your soil.
  • Molasses helps build up soil over time by supporting healthy fungi and bacteria.
  • Azomite contains several vital trace minerals.
  • Kelp Meal is an excellent source of essential micronutrients, enzymes and plant growth regulators. It's also a great all-purpose soil conditioner.
  • Alfalfa Meal helps aerate soil and optimize the microbial population. It is also a great calcium source.


Work recommended amount into the soil surface at time of application and mix into soil when repotting. This helps get the fertilizer where it's needed and also prevents molding on the surface of the soil.
