I have plants that were sent from forum members that are growing into healthy, single crown specimens. No blossoms yet but most are small but thriving. Very healthy little AV's.
I have a gift AV from a big box store that is huge and blooming. But there is an orange powder all over the plant. The plants has developed numerous suckers. I use plain water on the plant as I am thinking that orange crusty stuff is fertilizer and I don't want to add more.
Is there a heavy fertilizer that can be used to bring the AV's into bloom and heavy growth?
Do I need to fertilize my plants more? Not feed, feed, feed until they turn orange and sucker, mind you but I may be underfertilizing while the commercial growers are giving correct amount.
Anyone know what fertilizers, in what amounts, how often to get plants to super grow and bloom?
Is it wise to force growth, bloom and suckers or should I be content with healthy, single crown plants?
