    Maxsea for Heliamphora?

    I was just curious if anyone has used maxsea on Heliamphora and if so, were the results positive, or negative? I have been contemplating trying some on mine, but thought I shoud get some opinions first.

    Thanks.

    I've been using it in the pitchers and in the media for months with great success. I think the strength I use is 1 tablespoon per gallon

    I use it a 1/4 teaspoon per gallon. Some go to a teaspoon per gallon. A tablespoon IMHO is a little too strong.

    I fertilize the pitchers with a solution (concentration similar to Frill's) every week or three. Depending on my mood, I'll use Maxsea or another orchid fertilizer. Some use a much higher concentration (there are some other threads on this) but I'm not comfortable with the potential downsides. Regular fertilization with weak solution (weekly weakly) has given me good growth that I'm quite happy with ...
    All the best,

    I don't know about maxsea, but I use a solution of about 1tsp trich + 1tsp orchid fert per gallon of water that my Heliamphora sit in and they're not dead yet.

    I double checked the note on my fertilizer and it is actually 1 tsp.

    I generally fertilize once every 3 - 4 weeks.
