    Default using miracle grow ?

    I was wondering if any one has used Miracle Grow plant food as fertalizer for orchids, I have my orchids outside during the summer and it sure would be easier to fertalize them the same time as my annuals. THANKS HANK......

    I do, Hank. Just remember you must give a much diluted version of miracle gro to your orchids. You annuals get the mix on the box - your orchids should get 1/4 of the recommended dose.

    cheers,

    I use miracle grow. I diluet 1 of the large scoops in 5 gals of water. Then I apply with a pump sprayer or watering can.
