    Kelp fertilizer question

    So I heard about using kelp fertilizer on my two bogs to get better results.. So I wanted to ask what popular brands are okay to use.. are all kelp fertilizers okay to use? The only place I have found that carries this is a local nursery called green thumb international and they have it in either liquid or powder. Please let me know what I should purchase for my plants and thank you for your time.

    Well, I know that some CPs like flytraps don't tolerate any fertilizer well, so without knowing what's in your bog I really can't say.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    This is debateable... http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=121778

    However, I have never tried seaweed (kelp) fertiliser on Dionaea.

    Well, I actually saw a study somewhere around here that showed that some CPs tolerate it and some do not. I think that VFTs and S.alata were two that din't like fertilizer much.
