    Unhappy

    Hello to everyone!
    I wanted to try Miracid in order to fertilize my Nepenthes or at least some of them that are a little too slow.
    Looking on the net I found 2 versions of Miracid that makes me some confusions....which on I should buy?
    And are those ones the right ones?
    I post here 2 pics....
    One of them acts like an acidifer also and the other not.
    Some of you can describe me these 2 products?
    Have you experiences?
    Thank you!

    Use the second one because it's not as concentrated. You can tell because it says for Orchids, ferns and gardenias.

    Ehmm..sure...but what is the problem if it is concentrated?
    I can always use them in minor doses as recomended,don't you think?
    Did you never use it?

    I have indeed. Long time ago. Now i'm just using schultz.

    You can dilute it even further if you want to. Go with the first if you want. Using the second is just what I personally would do.

    I don't see why you say one acidifies the soil and one doesn't. If they are both for acid loving plants then they must both lower the PH. The first one looks like it would be more acidic given the genera of plants listed on the front.

    Hello JustLikeAPill!
    from what I have read....the PRO SELCT VERSION ( first picture at TOP ) has this description :
    30-10-10 specially formulated for azid loving plants. Great for Azalea, Camellia, Rhododendron, all Evergreens and the such.


    While the second product ( picture at bottom ) has this description :
    America's favorite for azaleas, rhododendrons and all evergreens! Soil acidifier and plant food with trace elements. Unique 30-10-10 formulation plus chelated iron, copper, zinc and manganese and other trace elements. Remarkable 3-in-1 plant treatment: feeds, ironizes, acidifies. Produces beautiful azaleas, rhododendrons and evergreens. For all acid-loving plants.

    Understood?
    It seems so that the SECOND product with add on of trace elements should be more functional.You are right! The producs are similar and I did make a miss take.
    Thanks!
