    Because I had some on hand and I was bored. But hey, at least I did something constructive-ish?

    The plant that looks like a freakshow is an albomarginata...which is just now producing its first pitcher in 10 months. Some people told me it wasn't 'scientific enough' to warrant noting, but i mean hey...when does a nep randomly start to look like pine needles

    mines 19-31-17. Watch out for copper. Mine has only 0.05%, whcih coudl still lead to problems BUT its water soluble, which is why its important to let the water drain out of your pots when you water w/o fertilizer

    Indeed. Heres mines stats.

    8 oz
    Dyna-Grow Orchid Fertilizer 7-8-6
    Total Nitrogen ------ 7%
    2.6% Ammoniacal Nitrogen
    4.4 % Nitrate Nitrogen
    Available Phosphate 8%
    Soluable Potash 6%
    Calcium 2%
    Magnesium .5%
    0.50% Water Soluable Magnesium
    Boron 0.0200%
    Chlorine 0.1000%
    Cobalt 0.0015%
    Copper 0.0500% Chelated Copper
    Iron 0.1000%
    Magnese 0.500%
    Molybdenum 0.0009%
    Sodium 0.1000%

    Same copper amount as yours. I only got it on the leaves. Is it dangerous?

    You know you don't have to put zeros after a decimal. So, can we sum this up and maybe add what fertilizer to use. Maybe I could just use the search button though, that might help.

    milk comes from a cow to provide nutrition to a calf, not a plant. It can deliver nutrients to your plants, but it is not effective compared to commercial fertilizers. If you are purchasing milk specifically to fertilize plants, the practice will cost you much more over a year than commercial fertilizers.
    that makes no logic

    I was just typing what it said on the bottle, not paying attention to that.
