NPK Medicine | (Nitrogen | Phosphorous | Potassium) – Bags
Fertilizers are labelled N, P or K to indicate their nutrient content in terms of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). All three are important for plant growth.
What does it mean?
Nitrogen is vital for plant growth. It aids in photosynthesis, thus converting the sun’s energy into sugar. Nitrogen is the substance that produces green, leafy plants. Without sufficient nitrogen, a plant may weak or stunted, while too much can create lush growth but no blooms.
Phosphorus also plays an important role in photosynthesis. Additionally, it stimulates healthy root growth and is necessary for the development of buds and flowers. Without enough phosphorus, foliage may take on a bluish tone, stunted growth, or fewer blooms.
Potassium promotes healthy, strong plants with more resistance to pests and disease. It is also involved in transporting water and nutrients throughout the plant. A lack of potassium may show up in various ways, such as curled leaf tips, yellowing leaves, foliage with purplish or brown spots or stunted growth.
