Thank you Chris, I'll check the numbers out.....
For example a fertilizer 20-20-20 is a balanced fertilizer where nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium are present in equal amount, by varying a value varying the concentration, an example 30-20-20, we will have a greater amount of nitrogen, a 20- 30- 20 more phosphorus, a 20-20-30 more potassium.
The micro-nutrients are constituted by trace mineral type is zinc, chromium, magnesium, etc ...
During flowering, in order to prolong the maximum you can use a fertilizer with less nitrogen.
In spring the nitrogen should be higher, while in autumn more phosphorus and potassium, but if you do not want to complicate things a high quality 20-20-20, that's great, what's important is the concentration, the better short supply that abound in order not to burn the roots.
Normally for Phalaenopsis force 1, Paphiopedilum force 1/2, Bulbophyllum, Phragmipedium, etc ... 1/4 strength.
