Keeping your indoor plants healthy isn’t always easy, especially during the colder and darker months of the year. If your houseplants are looking a little worse for wear after the winter, these are the best fertilizers to get them back on track just in time for spring.

1) EarthPods Premium Indoor Plant Food

EarthPods makes it super simple to give your indoor plants the nutrition they need. Each container has 100 easy to use capsules that you push into the soil near the root zone of your plant. That means no mess or measuring. While EarthPods come in several specialized formulas for everything from cacti to fiddle leaf figs, the indoor plant formula is a good all-purpose fertilizer for houseplants.
