    LOLLLLL!!!! These were my sentiments exactly, and I still have quite a large Bottle sitting on the shelf. I will get up the nerve to throw it down the drain sometime soon.
    Let us know whether you notice any improvement in the plant growth etc.

I can still eat VERY FRESH, VERY WHITE fish - but the smell of the remains of seafood can drive me out of my mind - instantly!

    PS - I cleaned everything I used to fertilize with bleach and disinfectant today, not to mention burning pine-scented candles. It's tolerable....

    I understand Maura, the smell of fish, lobster really put you off when you walk into a seafood shop. But I love to eat them. But it is a great tonic for plants. Too bad the smell is offputting, i wear a peg on my nose, and my orchids are outside in a greenhouse.
