Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures

Hi,
I forgot to cover my Brunfelsia Grandiflora last night. The new foliage looks wilted. I bought a product from Home Depot called Superthrive. I mixed it up in a gallon container and watered the plant and sprinkled a little on the leaves. To me it looked like it helped. Has anyone else used it? It is supposed to be a combination of hormones and micronutrients. It smells like those liquid vitamins we used to make our kids take.

Hi morninggloree...I found this Post below from another forum. I personally don't use it so I can't comment. Good luck with your Brunfelsia Grandiflora.

Here is a link that might be useful: Superthrive Post...

I use it but haven't thought to use it for after frost care. It does seem to help a little with stress and transplanting. I think it smells like vitamins and wonder if it is concentrated vit.B1 which you used to be able to buy in a larger bottle much cheaper. Not sure if you still can around here.

I checked out the obit, interesting that it was used by the Dept of Defense on transplanted trees planted for camouflage. Now someone just needs to invent an easy way to keep plants warm. There would be some $$$$ in that. Thanks all for the info.

What the heck happened? Why was this forum/page totally painted and screwed up?

It sounds like you were seeing one of the infamous ads, corar, that slide down and cover up the contents of the page and even if you click in a clear area that doesn't seem like part of the ad, you're clicking a link?

The solution is a good adblock. In windows I think firefox with the adblock extension is mentioned. On a mac you can do that or I just use glimmerblocker, which works for all my browsers.

Download and install Mozilla Firefox to use as your internet browser: Firefox

Once it Firefox is installed, start Firefox and go to this link to install Adblock Plus: Adblock Plus

Both of the above are freeware (free software).

Someone I know uses Superthrive on his orchids. He said it's the secret of the big orchid growers in South Florida.
