NPK and tomatoes
Somewhere on this forum (I think) I read where someone said that plants use the N (in NPK) faster than the P & K and that if you add more fert then you will be adding more N than the plant needs. If I am wrong please correct but I am trying to remember it as best as I can.
Anyway, am I correct in saying that if that is the case, then it would be ok to add just the PK part in order to get the plant to fruit. That is after the tom plant has passed the stage where the N has done its part, which is stimulating leafy growth and stems, etc.
I have been trying to find the PK part alone so as not to add more N esp since I have observed that my toms are leafy and sturdy looking.
Also my beans and squash. They have good green leaves, but now I am hesitant to add more MG for toms (18-18-21)bz I am afraid that I will be addding more nitrogen now the plants are big.
Please set me straight anyone...
