Anything that might push a weak plant to grow before it is ready could be very counter-productive - weak growth that the plant can't support leading to another step backward. Your results may vary of course, but 38 years growing orchids plus a horticulture degree tell me to let nature do its job first.
I went back and read the entire thread over. I was thinking backbulbs and rootless plants. That's where ive used the seaweed extract as a growth stimulant. A last resort sort of deal. I read in the past that it contains many growth stimulating hormones that could activate eyes and encourage root production. I hope I didn't cause confusion for anyone.Posted via Mobile Device
