plants have good light, good soil, and good drainage. The

Nitrogen is used for above ground growth. This is what
gives plants a dark green color. Phosphorous helps plant
cell division. It aids in flower and seed production and
in the development of a strong root system. Potassium helps
fight off disease and provides for strong stems.
