    Perhaps his conditions are different than yours. I don't remember seeing any ED there but I know his nursery exclusively uses MS on all their plants at 1tsp per gallon. Not sure if thats by hand or through injector sprayers.
    Then why did you say that they switched because it kills moss?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    "He told me on my visit that the reason they switched was because of the trace nutrients in the seaweed and the fact that it helped, not killed the moss."

    Anybody who's second guessing me quoting Peter, can just call him to verify the switch. I've never used it so I can't say diddly squat. All I did was ask him why he chooses to use such an expensive fertilizer on his entire nursery.

    actually i was planning on using it on my tillandsia, and my cps if they need it but i really dont think they do. ive just never really liked using the orchid fertilizer i have because it has no trace nutrients and its mainly urea based nitrogen.

    Iron 0.10% as Chelated Iron
    Manganese 0.05% as Chelated Manganese
    Molybdenum 0.0005%

    -----------
    ...I soak the tillys in it, have a separate orchid fert (use the Schultz pink/purple stuff), don't really have too much in the way of "regular plants" (just a cacao tree, some random succulents and a couple fruit trees from seed this year & alocasia amazonica), and feed the carnivores crickets/spiders/gross bugs I find around the house.

    I use this stuff for my Phals. It's Urea free too! I just add the same company's seaweed extract for trace nutrients as well. I used to use this stuff on my CP's but I just had it around for a about a year for my Phals. I can't say what the combo did for my moss since it was still dead at the time.
