I ordered a new Fertilizer that is designed for Orchids, I haven't received the package yet, and I'm not writing this thread to endorse the product. Leaving the fertilizer's commercial name hidden.
It comes in a 60g powder jar and is enough to make 120 liters of fertilizer. here is the composition:
NPK fertilizer with B, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Zn, Ca, Vit B1, 20 +19 +20 Naphtac
20% total nitrogen (N)
5.6% of nitric
4.0% of nitrogen
10.4% urea nitrogen
19% phosphorus pentoxide (P2O5)
20% potassium oxide (K2O)
Other water soluble:
0.02% boron (B)
0.004% Copper (Cu)
0.06% Iron (Fe)
0.03% Manganese (Mn)
0.002% Molybdenum (Mo)
0.002% Zinc (Zn)
0.22% Naphtac NAA (C12H10O2)
0.22% Thiamin (B1)
Application: continuous fertilization 0.5 g/l in either normal or foliar feeding.
I want to use it with a S/H setup, should I follow the recommended dosage or cut back on it, especially If i am currently using 50mg of acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) with each liter of water.
Thank you for your help.
I would cut back until it is tested in your growing environment (if you haven't used it before.) Let the plants tell you what to do.
