    Never used seaweed, except in the rooting hormone dip, but i use worm juice in my Disa water trough and sometimes as a pick me up mixed weakly with water. Works well....give Disas a go, they will surely thrive in your climate!

    Never mixed them together, but use several fertilizer types in rotation. Mainly stick with MSU and then fish emulsion, then miracle grow, back again.

    cheers,

    I use a combination of humic acid and sea weed emulsion together. Compost tea is almost the same as humic acids so it should work nicely.
