Is Tomorite suitable for any indoor plants

I  have an indoor rose - Can I feed with Tomorite?



  • I have an indoor rose - can I feed with Tomorite?

  • This rose was bought for my birthday  as an indoor pot plant,  It flowered for about 6 weeks - and  has

    now got six new flowers and the whole plant looks very healthy!  I would like to keep it and wondered if Tomorite would keep it going?  I suppose it was meant to only flower once and then  be thrown away?!

    Please could  you advise me I hate to throw healthy plants away and don' think it would survive outdoors as it isn't a patio rose.  Thank you.

    If Tomorite promotes flowers I cannot see it doing any harm.

    Googling also says that Tomorite is just the thing for roses!!!

    Those little Roses - given the right growing conditions - will survive quite happily outside. My best friend got a lovely peachy coloured one when she retired - 3 years ago and by putting it into a bigger pot outside with good compost it has thrived and flowered better and better each year. I water all my flowering plants in the greenhouse with tomato food - just because its easier than having two different feeds to mix up.

    I agree with Ladybird, they seem to do better outside long-term.  I feed all my flowering plants, even indoor cacti and orchids with tomato food and they all seem to approve. I buy just the cheap food from Wilkes or B&M but it does the trick.
