    a bit of a delay due to family issues and some other stuff.
    Fertilization date 2-8-09
    flush date 2-10-09
    results from previous fertilization - many leaves on the plants darkened in color, some just to dark green, and some got more red in them. plants also seem to be gaining speed in growth, reacting better than expected to fertilizing.
    next fertilization date 2-23-09

    obregon, your coffee grounds are prolly working for the same reason my fish fertilizer works darn well even though its quite weak at 5-1-1........the coffee grounds are prolly providing nutrients other than the standard NPK that most ferts are......

    How often do you use coffee grinds? And how much do you put per pot? Do you flush the entire pot afterwards? Please include more details, I want to try this on my neps.

    Thanks

    Fertilized on the 23rd, forgot to post here about it. ive seen dramatic improvement on my plants growth, especially the plants that were rather week like the macrophylla and my young spectabilis pangulobau. I will also fertilize a couple of plants for the first time today. N. rajah, N. jamban, and N. truncata x xTrusmadiensis will be fertilized. Also found out my tapwater is suitable for watering my CPs...20-23PPM
