Iodine and succinic acid will help restore geraniums to their blooming appearance

Geraniums or pelargoniums are once again gaining popularity as a flower for home growing. It is easy to care for, has a spectacular bright green color at rest, and blooms very lushly and for a long time. However, to ensure the flower's health and beautiful appearance, it needs to be properly nourished.

The easiest way is to buy a suitable ready-made fertilizer. But you can also prepare a nutrient mixture yourself. OBOZ.UA tells you about a couple of effective recipes that are suitable for resuscitating weakened bushes.

The first mixture is made based on sugar and iodine. To do this, take a liter of soft, settled water, and add 2 drops of pharmacy iodine and 1 teaspoon of sugar to it. Mix everything properly so that the sugar dissolves, and add another 1 liter of settled water to the mixture. This food replaces one of the regular waterings of the flower every 3-4 weeks.

To prepare the second fertilizer, you will need 1 tablet of succinic acid in a dosage of 0.25 g. Dissolve it in 250 ml of warm water. When the substance is completely mixed with water, add more liquid to the mixture to make exactly one liter. Next, the fertilizer is cooled to room temperature and poured over the geraniums once a month. The result is a fairly intense fertilizer that is best suited for caring for weak geranium plants – it allows you to restore their health and strength.
