    These $4 Plant Food Spikes Will Probably Save The Plants You Always Kill

    Miracle-Gro Indoor Plant Food Spikes are the affordable savior your not-so-green thumb has been waiting for.

    I know — you do your best to be a great plant parent. You give those spoiled brats all the TLC they could ever ask for, and what do they do to repay you? They wilt if you so much as water them a half hour too late; they droop and pout and die at the slightest inconvenience.

    Enter Miracle-Gro Indoor Plant Food Spikes, easy fertilizer sticks that are here to be your foliage co-parent and nourish your plant bbs even when you're not around. You only need to replace them every 30-60 days (depending on the season) so they require approximately zero effort.

    The proof of these babies' effectiveness is really in the review photos and the testimonies of concerned plant caregivers like yourself. Not just surviving but thriving. We love to see it.

    I'm living for these before-and-after photos — talk about a glow (or rather, grow) up!!!

    This reviewer actually saw their tomato plant perk up a bit in a matter of hours! 😲🍅👏

    On the left, a plant with leaves looking slightly droopy. On the right, the same plant slightly taller and perkier, with the text "overnight"

    Even if your plants are actually looking healthy and fine (good for you), these can help them grow and live their best life. Your plants can have a little food stick, as a treat.

    Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $4.17 — your plants will thank you.

    If you've got an orchid, you can get a special version just for them — $5.08 for a 10-pack.

    You and these sticks teaming up to help your plants grow like never before:
