    fertilizing cuttings

    Sorry if this has been asked before - direct me to the proper thread if it has. Is it beneficial or harmful to fertilize nep cuttings? I've got some planted in 50/50 lfs/perlite. Just wondering at what point they would benefit from this. Can't see when they start growing roots, obviously.

    Thanks.

    Probably not a good idea. The plant can't really do anything with it and the ferts will build up in the soil making things a little rough. You should only fertilize when the plant is in healthy growth.

    I would wait until the cutting has a couple leaves?

    I kind of suspected that was the case, but wanted to see if anyone had any luck. Thanks.
