Chemical fertilizer... yay or nay?
    #873186 - 09/09/02 08:42 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I'm a noob... read all the FAQ and didn't find my question so here it is. I just innoculated my first batch (6 half pint stubbies) and decided to experiment with a high nitrogen (10%) fertilizer containing phosphoric acid (6%) and soluble potash( 3%). I wasn't OVERLY generous with it but am now concerned as to if it will hinder colonization or give me the added thrust of fruiting i was hoping for. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts or knowledge anyone could give me regarding this practice. Specifically... does anyone know if the species (ecuadorian) LIKES nitrogen or whether i just introduced two nemises to each other. The brand of fertilizer was garden store bought C.I.L brand Evergreen Food.  Thanks. Brain. :confused:

You might not be doomed. Wait and see what happens. Don't do this again next time. When you're so new, it helps to stick to the FAQs and TEKs...

You didnt state what was in the stubbies.

If grain or bird seed?

You can add some extra nutes to the water or soak. A little dung/straw juice works fine.

I used the BRF and Verm combo... though I was rushed and simply mixed to desired consistency rather than actually measuring my imput. And in future.. if only to avoid the nagging doubt.. i'll be following mick's advice and stick to what the FAQ's say. unless of course the Eternity Tree of ecuadorian cubensis sprouts from the cakes...
