    Miracle Grow Singles (how often how much?)

    i was reading sumthing about miracle gro fertilizer singles and was wondering how often u would watern a plant with them, the npk is 24-8-16 and and says one packet per gallon (for outdoor inground plants) and half a packet for a gallon for indoor plants. they say to use every 7 to 14 days, but i also remember hearing in a grow guide or two that, although some fertilizers are recomended every few days, some growers still use them at every watering with great results.. does this rule apply to this type?

    Always start on the low side and build your way up. There's an awful lot of nitrogen in that so I wouldn't recommend it for flowering but it should work ok for vegging. Bone Meal is a nice fert to add to the soil.

    to answer your question toph, u shoudl read the NPK numbers on the label, for example my ferts numbers are 24-8-16, my fert is good for vegatative growth because it is hight in its first number: Nitrogen (N), the second number, Phosphate, is low, and so is not as good for flowering as other ferts. if ur second number is ur higher number of the three, then it should be ok for flowering..
