Unless good light levels are supplied and the plant is growing well, fertilizing will do more harm than good. Newly purchased or repotted house plants should be given a few months rest from feeding so that they can use up the nutrients already present in their growing mix. Plants require three major elements for healthy growth: nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). Generally speaking, fertilizers rich in nitrogen (the first number) will stimulate healthy, green growth of foliage, while those rich in phosphorus (the second number) will encourage good root development and improved flowering.

While prescriptions do exist to ease symptoms, there are also lots of changes that you can make to naturally increase serotonin levels and banish the winter blues.
