Feeding foliar plants - most important nutrients?
Feeding & puning are actually the questions. Our heartleaf philodendron was healthy and truly glorious - like Rapunzel's mangnificent flowing locks - until our young cat got at it and started shredding and defoliating!
We've managed to train the cat away from this nasty obsession. Now we'd like to see the H.P. grow lots of new leaves. So I know it would be no good to go overboard on fertilizing, but administer some a bit at a time. But, in terms of a soluble plant food, what nutrient emphasis is most important? (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, etc)
Another but related question: with heartleaf philodendron, if we prune back the vines - say, a third of the way or half way up - will this reliably boost the tendency for the vines to produce abundant new leaves?
