Feed now for blooms in September
« on: March 04, 2017, 09:13:39 »
It is now time to feed for big umbels and flowers here,a good hides is to feed a food rich in Pottasuim and I would add some Epson salts ,
The Potassium nitrate ensures flowering and should have been fed in January but it is still not to late it could be bought from any co op
Every year at the plant market inenvy the massive umbels from Oom Martin's as you could see them a mile away and last year he told me his secret he has a food made specifically for him by a chemical company and he uses it on his Orchids and Clivia with the motto weakly weakly and the results other breeders are getting is astounding
This is my secret for todays

Hi Neil
I don't have any experience with this but I am sure that it should not be much of a difference ,I normally order Pottasuim from Haifa chemicals and it is not expensive and last formkany years
Thanks Neil for a good question

A little reading has produced this nugget of wisdom.

•Provides resistance to mineral stress.
•Decreases climate stress.
•Improves strength.
•Increases growth and yield(Pottasium supliment=strong blooms)
•Helps plants to resist toxicity from phosphorous, manganese, aluminum and iron.
•Increases tolerance to salt.
•Protect the plants from botrytis (grey mold) and powdery mildew (PM)

The first seeds that I germinated flowered for the first time last year. They were a major let down. I stamped my feet and throw my toys but I kept them in their pots. I will start a Pottasium Silicate trial with these two plants.

Hi Martin

Which product do you use from Haifa? I checked their website and their are various potassium products. Which one would be the best to use?

Thanks
Ian

Of course there a a organic way to give plants Pottasuim it is by taking the ash from your braai if it is wood and NOT chargoal and feeding them with that
Thanks for your participation all

I have a wood fired heater for the Winter and have been using the ash mixed into the potting medium on those that have been lucky enough to get re potted this year, it will be interesting to see if it helps.
Great to "see" you again Martin :)
