Sibling Rivalry: Petunia Edition ~ The Secret Was Her Fertilizer Routine



A woman on TikTok took sibling rivalry to the next level. It was the showdown of the century, at least for hanging baskets.

Garden grower and TikTok user @the_right_rabbit purchased two hanging baskets full of vibrantly colored petunias. She gave one to her brother and kept one for herself.

Some people refer to fertilizer as plant food, but that’s a bit of a misnomer. If you want to get into the weeds, plants produce their own food through the process of photosynthesis.

According to this TikTok gardener, fertilizer is the secret behind her floral success. But not just any fertilizer will do. The brother is using Miracle-Gro every 7-10 days. 

First, she applies EZ-Wet Soil Penetrant to prep the soil. It essentially makes it easier for roots to absorb nutrients and water.

Next up is Seedlingers Liquid Fertilizer. This nutrient-rich blend is designed for young plants, but this gardener has found it can help mature blooms as well. Fertilome Plant Food follows, providing a balanced array of nutrients.
