    I'd like to try fertilizing some of my more sluggish growers. I want to get some advice though, as I've never used anything but gibberellins on my plants and I'd rather not overfertilize. I have those Oscomote pellet things...will those work? Do I just throw them on the soil or dissovle them in water or what?

    We use Neptune's Harvest Fish and Seaweed Blend 2-3-1, we use the dose for houseplants (or a little less). It works great, the Neps love it.

    Previously we used a high nitrogen orchid food, at half or quarter dosage. We switched to the Neptune's Harvest a while ago because it's organic.

    do you use it as a foliar spray, or in the soil?

    We drench the roots. We mix 1 tablespoon (give or take) with one gallon of water and give a good drink to the roots about once a month in winter, twice a month in summer. If a splash gets on the leaves and in the pitchers that's good. It works great on seeds too. After sowing Nep seeds Michelle sprays them with the fish and seaweed blend and they seem to germinate and grow faster.
