    Maxsea, when to flush?

    Hi all,
    Iv been opening old threads, and nearly all suggests that after applying maxsea then need to flush, but none of them exactly telling when to flush.
    Perhaps every plants require different treatment.
    Can you guys share your experience.

    Ah I'm glad I saw this! I totally forgot to flush the pots today after max sea- thanks for the reminder! my guess is that it depends on a few factors, including dilution, species, and general conditions. I'm going to flush the pots now, and it's been twelve hours plus. I use a very weak concentration though.. I'll let you know if I see any difference. Also working on a batch of egg water, considering 'the coffee treatment'- any experience with those?

    Flushing the fertiliser before use has been just fine in my experience.

    I usually flush the day after, three or four times with rainwater. A week or so later I get a blast of new growth that lasts about two weeks.

    Once a month always seem to be fine, during the summer. Honestly I forget, and probably average every six weeks or less. During winter I'd do it once every two months, as long they are still growing.

    Thank you guys for sharing.

    I dont have any experience with coffee treatment.
    If im about to fertilize, then this is going to be the first time.
    Few days ago, i try to feed my neps with osmocote. Well lets see if it burns the pitcher or not.

    Soo..I fertilized with a weak maxsea solution as I mentioned, and the next round of leaves coming out on all treated plants are considerably smaller than seems usual..or maybe they were just revealed sooner? it seems very consistent across the plants treated- thoughts?
