I started using Sumo Cakes on my houseplants and succulents in June and they have responded wonderfully. My photo shows one of plants after bugs had gotten into it and I was ready to give up on it. Thought I'd give Sumo Cakes a try and 4 months later it is going crazy! I used it on my new pine trees i planted this spring and on my outdoor hanging plants also. The hanging plants grew twice as big and I'll be excited to see my pines this next spring. I mix 3 cakes in a gallon of water and let it dissolve, then use it to fertilize every other week.
