FERTILIZER

Post anything you know about fertilizers and to which plants it is best suited.

Honestly I'm confused about those 14-14-14, 20-10-10, 36-24-36 fertilizers so I think I'll just stick to Liquid Bat Guano(do not smell for whatever reason!)

Also, I've read that Nitrogen is for plant's healthy green color and rapid growth. Phosphorus promotes root growth and flowering. and Potassium is for strong stems. Hope this serves as a guideline of some sort.

Please if there major blunders, do correct them!

The three numbers refer to a ratio of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium (NPK). I don't know how to apply the numbers to plants =/

I use so many liquid fertelizer type products that do different things with different npk I never really deal with the npk ratio.
The botanicare products I use are all sold with a feeding schedule and with a instructions on how much to use and what stage of growth to use it in.so I just follow those types of things and leave it to the producers of the stuff I buy I guess that what most people are doing not all but most.
