    Hi!, I'm actually curious about the use of fish emulsion as a fertilizer. Has anybody use it already?

    I know people who use it with citrus and love it, but not heard of people using it with orchids. The pro's will know

    hahaha... okay, now Joe. I will have to point the fans back toward Florida I suppose. lol!

    Yes, we use it in our greenhouse. We use it in rotation with other fertilizers. It is stinky, but does the trick! BTW - the stink is minimal in the GH and goes away fairly quickly or as soon as it drys up.

    Cheers,
