Andreas Wistuba Posted May 25, 2014 Report Share Posted May 25, 2014 Hello all, in my thread on Myrmecodia lamii in cultivation, Jeff suggested to use "high nitrogen fertilizers" - thank you Jeff!!! For the last 4 weeks I started to use such a fertilizer on most of my Hydnophytinae (after having carefully checked for root tip damage under a Stereo Microscope after an initial testing). The results are nothing short of being stunning! On many I have more growth in 4 weeks than I had in 6 months before. Leaf coloration looks much better, and plants are flowering and fruiting abundantly, that rarely if ever did before. As a long time carnivorous plant grower I have to admit, that my "usual plants" do not appreciate "heavy feeding" and so I am absolutely not used to using large amounts of fertilizer... After 4 weeks it is clear to me, that most of my Hydnophytinae must have been almost starving... I used this fertilizer: http://www.compo-expert.com/fileadmin/user_upload/compo_expert/de/dokumente/pdf/Produktinformationen_2014_Einzelseiten/Hakaphos_soft_Elite.pdf It was applied once a week 0,5 g/l with this useful tool that allows to feed single pots easily without fertilizing everything around: http://www.birchmeier.com/de/content/produkte/aquamix-1-25-1.0/uebersicht.php?src=main I just filled it with a 100x Stock solution. I hope that there are no negative long term issues, but I am quite optimistic. Thank you again, Jeff All the best Andreas Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
