Question Does anyone use...

MaxSea fertilizer? I use it for my CP's and was wondering if anyone uses it for their Orchids?
I do have some Miricle Grow granuals that I could make up too.
I mix it MaxSea at 1/8th teaspoon per gallon because VFT's and Droseras are really sensitive to fertilizers.

Also, I have found Miricle Grow Orchid Bark that has "timed release MG" in it, is it ok to use for repotting??
Happy Growing!

There is more than one MaxSea formula. If it is the all-purpose one, it has 16-16-16 concentrations of the basic nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) as well as trace minerals. It should be perfectly fine in a dilute solution.

If you use the Miracle Grow bark mix, you are committed to their dosage of fertilizer for as long as the pellets (or the bark) last. Some people have found that the Miracle Grow mix breaks down quickly or has such fine particles that you can't maintain air spaces.
