Why phosphorus is important for plants

Phosphorus is an essential element for the health and quality of plant flowers, fruits and root systems. It plays an important role in the development of a plant. The formation of cell walls and chlorophyll all depend on levels of this element. Phosphorus is also essential for photosynthesis and respiration.

Because phosphorus is essential to all growth processes, it can be found in large concentrations where new and growing tissues are being formed, such as the flowers and buds of plants. Phosphorus is especially necessary for young plants because it promotes the development of plant roots. This means young plants (seedlings) are particularly sensitive to phosphorus deficiency. 

An important thing to understand is that plant seeds can assimilate the phosphorus in the soil only in the fifth week of growth. This means it is important to fertilize the soil with phosphorus-containing fertilizer from the very start of planting the seed. Plant-I-Boost Universal is plant food that can be easily used to prevent or overcome this deficiency. The fertilizer contains phosphorus (NPK 8-5-1) and aims to provide your green friends with all the nutrients it needs.
