With urban farming picking up in land scarce Singapore, especially during the Circuit Breaker period, a local brand, Plantonic has introduced their own 4-in-1 organic fertiliser for those who want to try out farming.
Suited for plant parents of all capabilities, Plantonic serves as an all-encompassing fertiliser that aims to fight pests, fend of diseases, encourage healthier plant growth and improve soil quality. The formula is inspired by Ayurvedic and Traditional medicines and is safe for children and pets, making it suitable for home-use versus other commercial fertiliser that may contain toxic chemicals.
Plantonic is said to have been extensively tested on a variety of plants from fruiting trees to vegetables and ornamental foliage plants, to ensure it is suitable for organic farming and organic gardening. Notable effects are said to be observable within one month of regular use, and these include visibly greener leaves, robust plant growth, and quicker fruiting of trees. The plants’ internal health and the surrounding soil are also said to be intrinsically conditioned and revitalised.
We combed through the comments left by satisfied Plantonic users on various e-commerce platforms and it did seem that many customers saw their plants become healthier after using Plantonic.
Plantonic is said to promote soil health, biodiversity, and helps retain carbon contents in the soil longer. It encourages healthy root systems and improves immunity. It yields better and fresher produce and can help with achieving shorter harvest periods. It can be used as a treatment for seed germination and for encouraging flowering. Plantonic can also treat and control the spread of common diseases and is safe to be used together with other fertilisers, pesticides, and boosters.
It fulfils these 4 Fs:
1 — Fight
Contains naturally occuring insect repellents that target pests such as aphids, mealy bugs, and spider mites by breaking down their exo-skeletal shells.
2 — Fend
Natural anti-oxidants such as Shilajit and seed extract help plants ward off common diseases such as root rot, and bacterial and fungal infections.
3 — Fortify
Natural elements such as Ginseng Root help plants develop a strong immune system, making them healthier and more robust.
4 — Fertilise
Soil quality is revitalised through nutrients derived from extracts of Seaweed, Fruit Peel, and Tea Leaves, which in turn contributes to a healthier plant and better foliage growth.
Plantonic is certified by CHEMLAB to be of 100% plant origin and non-toxic. It is suitable for crops such as padi rice, sweet corn, vegetables and fruit. Most importantly, it is non-toxic and safe to be used around children, pets, and livestock.
I think the non-toxic attribute has got to be the strongest selling point for Plantonic which will appeal to home gardeners like myself. You want to ensure that your kids or pets don’t get themselves poison when they forage into your plant beds at home.
