    Question Fertilizer

    Hi All:

    I have done a quick pass though your posts and can't find an answer. I need to know where I can get some good fertilizer for these orchids. By that I mean I need special ones that I can't get at my local nurseries. I will be needing 20-20-20 and one with no nitrogen. Thanks so much, I hope I could ask this question (names of vendors). Sorry if I've made a foo poo, LOL

    You can google this brand "grow more", I think they 20-20-20 fertilizer. But if this is for indoors, I think you need low N fertilizer. I use both Grow More and Dyna Grow brand. But you can get Schultz brand in many local nursery store, it is 19-31-17, low on the N part.

    Hi Julie,
    No problem, brand names are fine to mention: we just do not allow posts about where to buy things.

    Members are welcome to PM (private message) a vendor name to refer a place where a much needed supply can be found when that is appropriate.

    I am sure someone will help you out with a fertilizer source. Qing's suggestion is right on the mark! Google is your friend! We even have Google search built into the search drop-down here in the forum. Try doing a search for 'M.S.U. Fertilizer'. in addition to Qing's suggestions. Good luck!

    And please feel free to PM me with any questions you might have. I am glad to help when I can. BTW, once you get 5+ posts, you can enable the PM system.

    Cheers!
