plants or flowers that like amonia



Welcome Chloebee!
As long as the soil is warm, many plants can use ammonia compounds, such as ammonium sulfate or ammonium phosphate, as fertilizer. Even ammonia gas, bubbled through the irrigation water, can be a decent fertilizer--though somewhat smelly! Household ammonia cleaner, however, has other compounds in it that can poison the plants' roots. For the other forms of ammonia, it may be easier to list the plants that don't like them--such as pines or cacti, which do better with organic forms of nitrogen fertilizer. I'll try to research a fairly complete list, but it might take me a few days.

ideally ammonia in what form. As Tugb says ammonium compounds are often found in nitrogenous fertilizers. But ammonia in animal urine will 'scorch' the plants.
