Hello, my name is Jose Zuniga. I'm representing I'm going to show you how to apply plant food to your herbs. It is essential that you do that. You know, do it at least every 7 to 14 days. The choices that you have are basically, either you could buy it in the powder, which comes in a little box like the one that I have here, or you could also buy the one that comes in the liquid, it is just ready to go. It is just going to be a little bit more expensive, so what is in your budget—it is up to you. For the powder one, just one tablespoon per gallon of water. I normally like to use my water bucket here, cause it is going to distribute all the food to the roots; that's is what we want. You know what I'm not going to stop there, because also I want to share a tip with you. The water sprayer—utilize it, put some food in there, and just go in there and spray every single leaf. By you doing this, you are going to beatify your herb. It's is going to give it the opportunity to grow, and it is going to be wonderful and you'll be able to enjoy your herb every day. Now another thing that I like to do is, when they are like in the kitchen or outside and it is too much sun, they are kind of dying, get two aspirins and a glass of water. Let them sit there for a while, and of course just apply it to the plant, and by the following day you would come up one good row. Please do not over do it on this. You got to do it at least 7 to 14 days; don't do it every other day or you would kill your beautiful herbs. This is how we apply plant food to your herbs.
