    I did with MaxSea, but I didn't notice a difference. If anything the insects they catch in summer do more than you think. I wouldn't really bother.

    Liquid seaweed by itself for gardeners isn't a fertilizer, its more of a growth stimulant/micronutrients package. There isn't a whole lot of actual fertilizer in seaweed extract. It's usually like 0-0-2 or less.

    I tried Osmocote once, on a psittacina.

    It turned yellow and developed brown spots!

    I've had good results with orchid fertilizer diluted about 5 or more times the recommended mix w/ seedlings.

    I am going to try Miracid® for acid loving plants this summer with a 1/4 diltution to the recommeded measurements per gallon. It is 20-10-10. I will mist the plants 2 times per month. I figure it cannot do anything but help at that dilute mixing ratio.
    Pitcher's only for me Please.
