    For their development, plants need light, water, carbon dioxide, and warmth. Equally the nutrients in the soil play an important role, including nitrogen, phosphor, and potassium. The plant absorbs these nutrients over the roots. For an optimal plant care, the selection of the plant substrate, respectively the improvement of the soil by choosing the suitable fertilizer is essential. Indoor plants obtain new nutrients trough regular transplanting into fresh substrates and the according fertilization. Also in the yard it is necessary, to provide the soil with nutrients. Due to the conditioning and harvest, raw materials are taken from the soil, which then are missing during the natural rotting process and therefore cannot contribute to the nutrient balance. There are several fertilizers available to compensate this nutrient deficiency and to stimulate a healthy plant growth.
