Questions about Fertilizing And Ph..
Josh, Did I spell that right? It looks funny to me. ;-) Fertilizing? lol..
On to my questions. I see it talked about many times over here that if a solution doesn't provided Calcium and Magnesium then it should be added.
Often miracle grow is brought up, which is what I have at the moment. And the box is long gone, so I cant read it to see if it has these in it. :-(
I've seen Epsom salt and Gypsum suggested. But in what ratio's ? How much should be added to say a gallon of water at each watering?
And is the Gypsum added to the water or soil. My guess would be soil, and if so, should it be replaced from time to time, and about how often?
My little tree is currently in 5-1-1, and I goofed and forgot the lime, so is there anything else I should do?
I use rain water as often as possible, and it was suggested in another thread to add some tap water, which is interesting and I never would have thought to do. So from here out, I will do that.
I have also seen it suggested to test our water for PH. I know my water is horrible! So I do plan to test it.
Is it best to test before watering or the run off? I've seen both suggested.
So.. If I figure out how to feed it proper, plenty of sunshine, and TLC, I'm good to go right? :-)
