OK to fertilize new cuttings with 1/4 strength each time

ginjjApril 7, 2012

I've ready to fertilize fuchsia cuttings once they start showing growth, with 1/2 strength fertilizer every other feeding.

It would be much easier for me at least, to feed a more dilute amount with each feeding.

I also realize that using a 20-20-20 is twice as strong as a 10-10-10 liquid feed right?

Thanks

Ginny

It's always better to under- rather than over-fertilize, so basically the answer is yes. If your compost is good you probably don't need to fertilize at all initially, until there is a good root system.
