MaxSea is a kelp-based fertilizer that is safe for use with most carnivorous plants when diluted in concentration from the typical recipe and used as a foliar feeder (meaning you only spray it on the leaves and lightly in pitchers). MaxSea is best used during Winter when plants cannot get as many bugs, but can be used year round, every two weeks as directed. Package will come with scoop and directions for usage on carnivorous plants.

If you are looking for bugs for Winter feeding or just in general to give you plants the extra boost of nutrition, please check out our every growing Accessories section located here.

You will receive one 3" x 5" resealable craft bag containing 3 Tablespoons of fertilizer and a scoop that measures 1/4 of a teaspoon, the appropriate amount for fertilizing carnivorous plants. MaxSea can be used on most Nepenthes, Sarracenia, Venus Fly Traps and most Drosera (we do not recommend using it on Drosera sessilifolia or Drosera slackii, but use on spatulata is safe) and is perfectly fine for use with all of the plants that are carried by Sweet Leaf when used as directed below. Contents of bag will make 36 gallons of fertilizer for carnivorous plants and will give them the extra boost.

Directions for use: Tear open package and measure out one level scoop of fertilizer with the provided scoop. If you lose your scoop in the future, a level 1/4 teaspoon is perfectly safe, but we provide a scoop because it smells funny and some people don't like to use their cooking utensils for their fertilizer.

Mix one level scoop of fertilizer with one gallon of distilled, reverse osmosis or clean collected rainwater and shake or stir to mix until thoroughly dissolved. Pour mixture into a spray bottle or garden sprayer and mist the leaves of your carnivorous plants, avoiding spilling it into your potting medium and allow the plant to absorb the nutrients. Repeat this process every two weeks, being careful not to overfeed them. We recommend misting them every other weekend to help remind you of when to feed.


Winter Shipping

96 hour HEAT PACKS are available under the Accessories category. Due to the colder weather and the postal delays from Covid-19 and the increased number of packages during the holidays, we are only offering the larger, 96 hour heat pack and are upgrading all orders with a heat pack to Priority to hopefully ensure that the heat pack is still working upon arrival.

If the daytime temperature in your area or mine is below 45 degrees, we recommend a heat pack. If your area is going to be extremely cold, then you may need two heat packs. If you do not want to include heat packs during cold weather, then you take full responsibility if your plant freezes. We may check the weather between South Carolina and your location, and send a message to recommend adding a heat pack. We do not leave our plants outside for the post office to pick them up and instead take the plants to the post office before the postal truck comes at 4pm so that they are not sitting outside in the elements. We want to provide you with the highest quality plants possible and between our cost and the extra added cost of shipping, there is no mark up on heat packs and they are simply provided as a service to ensure your plants arrive safely.


They last at least 96 hours. Due to mail delays, we are only offering the 96 hour heat pack at this time. For an additional $7 charge, we are offering a shipping upgrade to priority shipping with an included heat pack. We cannot be responsible for plants that were damaged by extreme cold where a heat pack was not purchased, so please check your weather and take postal delays into consideration.
