I’d like to start a conversation about time release, controlled release fertilizers.
I’ve been looking at some fertilizers like Osmocote or even Aptus time release utilizing resin coated fertilizers to control the release of feed to the plant.
My own fertilizer evaluation shows Osmocote to be pretty good when comparing to other fertilizers, the thought of simply sprinkling in this type of feed and just watering it is very appealing, I had a few hundred plants last year and in a one man show its a bit time consuming when it comes to feeding plants. I guess I see the advantage when irrigating hundreds of plants
Before any trash talking begins, Osmocote has a veggie formula, and Aptus is “100%” organic based and is designed for canna production.
I’m just amazed how common CR/TR formulas are in the garden industry, typical indoor ornamentals have the CR/TR formula from the greenhouses. Alot of veggie and flower soils have contain this type feed.
Current cannabis paradigm:
Premium Cannabis Soil + Premium Cannabis Fertilizer & adjuncts like flower boosters, etc.
