Just kinda curious when do you fertilize your house plants? We still have about 45 days before I can place most of my house plants outside..... Once the weather warms up I take a few house plants outside and fertilize them and then return them into the house. Mine have been in the house since mid November 2010 and most are looking great, but I feel I need to lightly fertilize them. Any suggestions or comments are welcome!!!

Lightly fertilize is correct! If using a water soluble fertilizer, just mix it at half strength, but now is the time to start giving them a little boost.

A lot of times people just look to see, and either don't know the answer or assume someone else with more knowledge will answer. We should be getting a lot more viewers now that spring is approaching. Have patience-don't give up!

You should fertilize your house plants in spring &/or summer as that is when the plant is actively growing. I haven't remembered for quite some time but I use the water from cleaning my fish tank so there are nutrients in that, I figure.
