Learn How To Feed This Funny-Named Plant Called Monkey Grass

Sharing is caring!

If you live a fast lifestyle and don’t have time to take care of your flowers every day, then this plant is great for you because it requires low maintenance!

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Monkey Grass! Don’t judge a book by its cover (or its name!). Although, I have to admit, the name is really funny!

This flower amazed me with its appearance because it has perfect purple flowers that are held upright and proud. Now we’re going to learn how to care for and feed this plant. 

Let’s explore!

Prepare Some Yummy Compost

Monkey grass is one of the most low-maintenance plants. That’s why you’ll only need to feed it once a year in early spring

This will ensure healthy fruit growth and encourage new purple flowers to bloom! I fed my plant on the very first day of spring because that is undoubtedly the best time to do so!

Nitrogen and potassium are great fertilizer for Monkey Grass. Trust me, they are a must-have for your plant. Just read the instructions on the fertilizer and go for it!

Organic compost is also a good option for flowers. You can make delicious compost from kitchen ingredients such as fruits, vegetable peelings or even coffee grounds. You won’t go wrong, whatever you decide!

After feeding, make sure to give the flower a cold drink. That’s what the plant needs to activate nutrients and welcome the summer with its beauty. See, it’s not that complicated! As far as food is concerned, your work here is done. Piece of cake, right?

In Case You Overfeed Your Funny-Named Green Buddy, Do This

Now that you have fed the plant, you just have to wait for it to bloom. But, you mustn’t overdo it! 

If you overfeed it, you can cause burns on the roots or leaves. This can slow down the growth, and that’s something you don’t want to happen.

If you see that your plant doesn’t look good, rinse it well with water to wash away the excess nutrients

Then cut off the damaged leaves. This can also be a good way to speed up the growth of flowers! Eventually, all you have to do is monitor the flower daily and observe how the situation unfolds.

This plant is great even if you are the busiest person in the world. One meal a year is all that is needed. 

All you have to do is make your plant a good meal so you can enjoy it in the next season!

Come on now, your plant is hungry!
