Hi everyone. First post here. I have a couple questions about my Fuchsia plant and how to feed it.
I have it in a hanging basket. I have Miracle Grow 20 20 20 plant food. Water soluble. The box says 1 Tablespoon per gallon of water. But a gallon seems like too much water doesn't it? For 1 plant? So I diluted 1/2 Tablespoon in 6 Cups water and gave it to my plant. ( 1/2 Gallon is 8 Cups )
I poured half of it on one side of the plant and the other half on the other side. Nothing happened at first but after about 10 seconds water started to run out of the holes at the bottom of the pot. 3 streams ran for about 10 seconds and then just 1 stream trickled for a while.
Did I over water?
Did I mix correctly?
I plan on doing this every 7 - 10 days. In between days I will just use regular water when the plant needs it. So I am only "feeding" it once a week or so.
Is this method good? Anything else you recommend? I attached 2 pictures so you can see the size.
