    Question New Fertilizer...

    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)
    Water-soluble

    20% potassium oxide (K2O)
    Water-soluble

    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.

    cheers,
