Triple Super Phosphate N.P.K. 00-46-00
Elixir Gardens Triple Super Phosphate is best used as an additive to soil, during a period of extensive nutrient growth. For example when your tomato plants are starting to develop fruits. During this period plants will use a lot of nutrients, including Phosphorus. Alternatively it can also be used very soon before planting, as it will give the new plants a larger source of Phosphorus when they need it.
Elixir Gardens Triple Super Phosphate Nutritional benefits:
Phosphorus 46%: Phosphorus is used by plants for most of their processes. From photosynthesis to cell division and energy storage. Abundant supplies of this mineral promote healthy root growth and vigorous early growth.
It is always recommended to test your soil for deficiencies before usage, as too much phosphorus can reduce the amount of other nutrients your plants absorbs from the soil. Take care not to apply too much, or too early/late, as the phosphorus is subject to “fixation”. During this process the phosphorus reverts to forms that plants cannot easily utilise.
