    Fertilizing Maxsea 16-16-16 in a Circulating Bog

    Hi all, I see threads about circulating bogs and I see threads about Maxsea 16-16-16 fertilizer, but no threads about using Maxsea in a circulating bog. I visited Mr. D'Amato a few weeks back and he recommended Maxsea 16-16-16. His own mixing directions call for dissolving 3/4 tsp into a gallon of water, sprayed monthly.

    Does having a circulating bog call for an adjustment? How does the total volume of the bog (about 10 gallons of constantly dripping water) weigh against what would be repeated exposure to the fertilizer? Does that make sense?

    Any input is welcome and of course, standard YMMV rates apply Thanks!
