What Customers Say

Why Eggplant Needs Specialized Nutrients

Eggplants demand specialized nutrients to support their fruit development and overall plant health. Without the right balance of minerals and nutrients, eggplants can suffer from poor yield, disease susceptibility, and subpar fruit quality.


Water eggplants deeply once or twice a week, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings, to ensure consistent moisture.


Provide eggplants with at least six to eight hours of full sunlight daily for optimal growth.


Use well-draining, nutrient-rich soil with a pH between 5.5 and 7.0 to support healthy eggplant development.

Additional Tips

Mulch around the base of the plants to retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and maintain an even soil temperature.
