Ornamental plants


Foliar fertilization recommendations in the cultivation of ornamental plants

The application of foliar fertilizers in the cultivation of ornamental plants represents a very effective measure for the improvement of the cultures in different qualities.
So the market value and the plants quality of seedlings and finished goods can be increased enormously if a weighed out nutrition of the plants with main nutrients and trace nutrients has taken place.

Aminosol® for more growth security and less plants stress

Our product Aminosol® is used  in the cultivation of ornamental plants for more than 25 years. Dipping of seedlings and cuttings in a solution of Aminosol® and water raises the growth security and promotes the formation of a strong and healthy root. Plants stress is reduced and fast growth is stimulated by the direct supply of amino acids.

Application recommendation 

Dive of the plants in a solution of 1% Aminosol®


Aminosol® for plants protection measures and for the stabilization of stress tolerance, root growth and leaf quality

With young, salable plants the application of Aminosol® in addition to plant protection measures produces a pleasing brilliancy of the leaves, the spot formation is decreased and the wetting- and adhesion effect on the leaf is improved.

We recommend as a solo measure - to promote of the resistance - several applications of Aminosol® in cold house cultures (Primula, pansy, viola, Bellis), bloomer (cyclamen, Christmas stars, blazing little Kathe) patch plants and outdoor plants (geraniums, fuchsias, begonia, petunia), moorland patch plants (sourish gentian, Japanese Lavelheide, Torfmyrthe) and Azerca cultures (Ericas, heath grass).

Application recommendation

100 - 300 ml Aminosol®/100 l water

Fluid main nutrient fertilizers Lebosol-Nutriplant® with nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to promote the generative and vegetative growth of ornamental plants

We recommend our Lebosol-Nutriplant® - product series for different stages of the ornamental plants. At the beginning of growth and the promotion of the rootening Lebosol-Nutriplant® 6-12-6 or Lebosol-Nutriplant® 5-20-5 has proved itself.

Lebosol-Nutriplant® 12-4-6 is primarily used to promote the vegetative growth.

A balanced nutrient relation to the generative growth is found in Lebosol-Nutriplant® 8-8-6.

The nitrogenous fertilizer solution Lebosol-Nutriplant® 36 is used to the supplement of the nitrogen fertilization or to the improved coloration, e.g., with bloomers.

Stabilization of the resistance against frost in cold cultures, e.g., Primula, pansy, viola, Bellis

Frost means stress for the plants. For the improvement of the frost hardness a sufficient care of the cultures with the nutrients potassium and boron has to be guaranteed.

Boron promotes the potassium admission. Potassium affects by the rise of the osmotic pressure in the plants cells the frost hardness positively. The principle of the frost protection is based on the fact that with good care osmotic effective substances like sugar and potassium are attached in the cells.

Thereby the internal cell pressure rises. So only ice is formed between the cells, the cell membrane remains unhurt.

Application recommendation

Before frost  1 - 2 times 2 l/ha Aminosol® + 1 l/ha Lebosol®-Robustus SC + 5 l/ha Lebosol®Kalium 450

In moorland patch plants (sourish gentian, Japanese Lavelheide, Torfmyrthe) and Calluna Vulgaris (Erica / heath) the application of Lebosol®-Kalium-Plus has proved itself. Potassium phosphonate causes a stabilization of the plant’s defences, so that in all the root and leaf health is improved.

Application recommendation

2 - 5 times 200 - 300 ml / 100 ls Lebosol®-Kalium-Plus or Lebosol®-Magnesium-Plus to the vitalization and stabilization of the resistance.

In spite of frequently high ferric oxide contents in substrates, iron chlorose is in wide use in the ornamental plant cultivation.

Lebosol®-Eisen-Citrat GOLD guarantees a fast nutrient admission with a fast effect, particularly with Surfinia, Millenbells, Primula or roses.

Iron chlorosis (Iron-deficiency) Hortensie

Application recommendation

2 - 5 times 1 l/100 l of water Lebosol®-Eisen-Citrat GOLD during the vegetation period (not during the blossom).
