Growing Bromeliads For Terrariums Indoors Best Lights For Growing Terrarium Plants Terrarium Plant Grow Lights Terrarium Plant Grow Rack
The products on this page are about as natural & mild as you can get while still maintaining product effectiveness. For the most part, terrarium plants and houseplants require very little in terms of available nutrients. A little bit of balanced nutrient solution goes a really long way with the majority of terrarium plants in our experience. That being said, it's important to understand a little bit about the NPK ratings listed on plant nutrient packaging. We'll skim over the details below.
(N) Nitrogen promotes healthy leaves & vegetation, and is considered the most important element for supporting healthy plant growth via formation of proteins within the plant. It supplies plants with the energy necessary for healthy photosynthesis, as it's one of the basic components of chlorophyll. Nitrogen supports healthy leaf production, and helps to speed up general plant growth. A plant suffering from nitrogen deficiency may suffer from pale leaves, yellowing/browning foliage, and wilting.*
(P) Phosphorus is important for early plant & seedling development, as it helps support growth of a healthy root system. From what we understand, a little phosphorus in the early stages of growth is important. In houseplants, phosphorus toxicity can occur when levels are too high in the soil, so we recommend going easy on this particular element. A little goes a long way! A plant suffering from phosphorus deficiency may suffer from stunted growth or dull coloration.*
(K) Potassium / Potash aids in flower/fruit formation, and helps plants to grow by activating many different enzymes involved in plant growth. Simply put, potassium helps plants utilize water, resist periods of dryness, and adjust to other environmental stresses. A plant suffering from potassium deficiency may suffer from curled leaves, yellowing, and a general lack of vitality.*
* Please Note: The #1 cause of discoloration & poor growth in terrariums is a lack of sufficient lighting. Always check to ensure your plants are receiving adequate levels of PAR Light. The #2 cause of poor plant performance are environmental issues. (Low humidity/high heat) The #3 cause is a poor substrate quality. Only after all of those issues are addressed would we recommend considering "lack of nutrients" as the cause!

Biobizz Individual Bottles

Individual 1-Liter Bottles Of Nutrient Concentrates

Bio Bizz Sampler
▾ Show Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
Bio Bloom, Bio Grow, Fish Mix, and Top Max are some of the most commonly used BioBizz products at NEHERP, and those are all available in discounted 250ml containers through the Nutrient Packs we offer. (That's the recommended option for 95% of our customers!) BioBizz discontinued all small bottles for individual purchase in 2018, leaving 1 liter bottles the smallest size available. Each can make up to 132 gallons of nutrient solution, so these are seriously overkill for most folks outside the hydroponic hobby. With that in mind, these larger bottles are special-order only from us, in an effort to ensure we ship the freshest product possible.

Biobizz Nutrient Pack #1

Ultra-organic nutrients from the same brand we use in-house!

Bio Bizz Sampler
▾ Show Description ▾

NEHERP Staff Description:
Bio Bizz's nutrients are about as natural & mild as it gets while still maintaining product effectiveness. This pack includes 250ml each of Bio Bloom (1-2-2 NPK), Fish Mix (4-0-3 NPK), and Top Max (0.2-0-0.1 + Micronutrients). In combination, these three products can be used to customize your own NPK nutrient ratio around your specific plant's needs. We've found the lower Phosphorus number helps to avoid bioaccumulation in the drainage layer, which is a concern with that particular nutrient. We often apply in a diluted 5-2-5 ratio, at 1-2ml of each ingredient per liter of water. (This concentrated pack can create up to 50 liters of nutrient solution!) Every plant is different and everyone's collection varies, so we strongly urge you to use caution, common sense, and tread lightly while working with any nutrient. Please be sure to do your research before applying! These are ultra-organic nutrients certified by a number of organizations, and the most-used nutrients in our grow rooms. We recommend only creating enough "ready to use" liquid to get you by for that particular day. Once diluted, the contents should be used fairly quickly to prevent spoilage. (We refrigerate our concentrates after opening)

Disclaimers:
1) Additional nutrients are most commonly required for bioactive terrariums which do not contain primary inhabitants. We use these outside of enclosures for the most part, so please use common sense and perform your due diligence when using any nutrient around animals. Most properly designed complete bioactive vivarium ecosystems will receive all the nutrients required from the animal's "natural fertilizer", beneficial leaf litter, and NEHERP Vivarium Substrate. If your enclosure's plants aren't thriving while housing an animal which does not require spot cleaning, we recommend considering variables like Lighting & Substrate before concluding the problem is nutrient related. In our experience, these products do not negatively impact beneficial detritivores like Springtails & Isopods, but they are not marked specifically for use around animals. That being said, we haven't been able to find any other brand which meets a higher standard of "stupendously organic". :-)
2) Totally organic nutrients smell totally organic. To be up front, it can be a little stinky at first. Don't over-do it with the nutrients (especially fish mix) if you'd like to keep the odor down. We fully understand this is probably a turn-off from a potential sale, and that's OK. It's a trade-off we're willing to make to keep things as organic as possible. If you are looking for a lower-odor solution and don't mind the trade-off for a slightly less balanced NPK ratio, we'd recommend the other BioBizz Nutrient Pack.

Cute Farms Exotic Tropical Plant Fertilizer

A natural general-use fertilizer for houseplants

Cute Farms Terrarium Plant Fertilizer
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
The Cute Farms brand was recommended to us by a customer, and we've been using it in house since we discovered the brand in 2020. We've had good luck with it for houseplants displayed in our homes & offices, as well as for plants in our grow rooms. It's also cheaper than the (less natural) off-the-shelf sprays at garden centers! The bottle recommends once weekly use, but most we typically only offer nutrients once every 2 weeks at home, since most of the plants we work with have very low nutritional requirements. In our experience, a little bit goes a long way. Try it out, and see what works best for your particular plants!
Note: This product is recommended for houseplant use, not marked for plants in live vivariums housing animals.
Manufacturer Description:
Cute Farms is a family owned an operated business. Our plant fertilizer products will help your plants flourish and thrive. Gentle weekly use formula made specifically for growing healthy exotic and tropical plants and flowers including Orchids, Lilies, Ferns, Terrariums, Monstera, Palms, Anthurium, Croton, Dracaena, Dracaena Marginata, and Snake Plants. NPK rating of 16-9-25. Gentle enough to spray directly onto air plants. Includes a fine mist atomizer spray bottle. Each 4oz of solution feeds plants for 3 months.

While we used to mix our own Tillandsia fertilizer, we've now switched over exclusively to using Cute Farms brand. In our experience it seems to work just as well with far less effort for the plants we keep in our store and at our homes, and the price is at least as good as any of the (often less natural) mainstream options. Try it out, and see what works best for your particular plants!
Note: This product is recommended for houseplant use, not for plants in live vivariums housing animals.

Diatomaceous Earth

OMRI listed chemical-free crawling insect killer

Diatomaceous Earth - OMRI listed chemical-free crawling insect killer
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
As far as "bags of stuff that kills insects" goes, Diatomaceous Earth is relatively mild. Rather than relying on some nasty chemical, Diatomaceous Earth works mechanically. Frankly it's a bit unpleasant to think about, but basically it's such a fine powder that it cuts-up the insects at their joints as they walk through it. In short, it's equal parts effective and brutal. :-) We consider DE good choice for use around areas where mites may be an issue. (Not recommended for use around live animals!)
Manufacturer Description:
This organic pest control formula is ideal as a bed bug killer or for virtually all crawling insects. The efficient nature of this organic pest control product makes it the most economical and convenient solution to the wide array of garden annoyances on the market! This product bears the prestigious OMRI-listed seal as well as the USDA National Organic Program compliant for use in organic gardening seal, certifying this product is organic. Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a dust-like product that contains the crushed fossilized remains of diatoms. The dust is ingested by the bed bug or other crawling insect, or as the insect crosses through the powder, the DE will cut their exoskeleton, causing them to dehydrate and die. Insects cannot develop a resistance to it, since there are no chemicals to which they can build up an immunity. If the area where the Diatomaceous Earth is applied becomes wet, it will need to be reapplied. Diatomaceous Earth is effective as a bed bug killer, flea killer, and crawling insect killer. Safer Brand Ant and Crawling Insect Killer Powder with Diatomaceous Earth is made from a patented formula containing amorphous diatomaceous earth, known as silicon dioxide. This particular type of Diatomaceous Earth is derived from fresh water sources and is NOT the same as Diatomite DE which can be derived from unnatural sources and has been linked to cancer. Shop confidently knowing that Safer brand is OMRI listed and is Amorphous Diatomaceous Earth.

Organocide 3-in-1 Garden Spray

An organic insecticide & fungicide for organic production

Organocide
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
The list of pesticides & fungicides which are also OMRI Organic, and marked as "safe for same day harvest" is extremely short. This is an awesome option. The new product labeling mentions "Bee Safe", which is nice to know - even if you won't be using it on outdoor plants. It's particularly effective on scale insects and mealybugs. On very rare occasion, we've also used Organocide to help out with the occasional fungal issue, where this product has proven to be equally effective. No product we've seen is this effective while being so mild. (Check out the ingredients list!) Not for use in live vivariums, or around live animals.
Manufacturer Description:
Organocide is an OMRI listed, nature-safe insecticide and fungicide for organic production. Derived from a unique blend of soybean extract (lecithin), sesame oil and fish oils. Organocide is heavier and more effective than other oils, but safer to the plant. Effective on insects, spider mites, scale insects, and fungus. Soft on beneficial insects including Bees & Butterflies. It will not cause plant burn even when used on hot sunny days! Effective on a wide variety of insects, mites, armored and soft scales and certain fungal diseases like black spot on roses and powdery mildew. Organocide replaces many "hard" synthetic pesticides and is safe enough to spray at harvest time or indoors. (This is the ready to use version)

Help Growing Plants In Bioactive Terrarium Useful Supplies For Growing Plants In Live Vivariums Best Fertilizers For Bioactive Terrariums Best Fertilizers For Live Vivariums
Substrate Analysis
Poor substrate is the #1 cause of premature environmental failure, and one of the most common reasons microfauna & plants fail to thrive. This is a common problem with DIY mixes, as well as other blends which don't actually list ingredients or (at least rough) ratios. A properly designed substrate mix will be quick-draining, slightly acidic, have the ability to resist compaction, and should be able to support microfauna & mycorrhizal fungi long-term. Like the original and most proven ABG Mix, all of our NEHERP Substrates contain a mix with over 80% aggregates like like tree fern fiber, fine fir bark, fine hardwood charcoal, calcined clay, and/or cypress mulch. Low-end mixes have far less aggregate material which contributes to premature compaction and a half-dozen other problems. If you are curious, please learn more about our substrates, or see exactly what we'd recommend for your enclosure.

Lighting Analysis
One of the most common causes of poor plant performance in bioactive terrariums is poor lighting, and the problem is most commonly found with knock-off or low-end LEDs. Our support department has seen dozens of cleverly marketed "grow lights" which have comparatively poor PAR light performance compared to brands like Current, Jungle Dawn, Jungle Hobbies, and Value Grow. Many LEDs which look the same have major differences in measurable PAR & Lux performance due to better brands using higher-end diodes & drivers. If your lighting didn't come from our company and your plants aren't thriving, we recommend comparing the light source to the solutions we recommend, and checking the PAR output of each. (See PAR ratings of every LED we carry towards the bottom of Vivarium Lighting 101) We've been specializing in this stuff since 2009, and customers who use our lighting solutions have an awesome track record of success.
Other Common Problems
• Our substrates, plants, and microfauna are recommended for environments which will sustain a bare minimum of 55% R/H.
• If you are growing NEHERP Moss or Moss Slurry, please check the care sheets for advice. (High humidity & PAR will be required)
• Be sure to place plants (especially Neoregelias & Tillandsias) appropriately. Check Vivarium Construction 101 for suggestions.
• Ensure custom backgrounds are completely cured before adding plants, since the fumes from uncured silicone can kill plants!
• If your enclosure contains an animal which requires spot cleaning, additional fertilization for plants may be necessary.
