Re: Welcome Craig Fry!

and got a photo before it flew off and then through a tiny hole in my green house

Re: What PPM range for Dyna-Gro All Pro?

Just wanted to point out one thing I didn't see mentioned (I could have missed it)

You need to take a baseline ppm of your regular water first, then subtract that value from your ppm with Fertilizer for the correct value

Please continue...

I did 2 applications so far, several months apart, and want to do a third application soon. But it takes several hours to do it right, which I don't enj...

Re: Expectations when purchase new cacti Question?

I would try to remove some of it, or not.
I sure wouldn't sell a plant that looks like that, and would send a replacement or refund if I did.

I found this product on Kakteen Haage: https://www.kakteen-haage.de/en/accesso ... 30-ml.html
In what strength do you use it to water your plants?
Use the label recommended strength, 6 to 12 ml per gallon
I use 12 ml per gallon for maximum effect.
