Controlled Release Fertilizer
13-13-13 with Micronutrients Type
is a high-quality compound fertilizer coated in a unique resin to insure
precision controlled release of nutrients. The pliable, resilient coating
contains a release agent which allows the penetration of water and subsequent
release of the fertilizer. It also contains all the essential micronutrients
that your plants require. Type 140 means the fertilizer will release 80%
of its nitrogen evenly over a140 day period at a constant temperature
of 77įF (slower at cooler temeratures). The nutrient release of Nutricote
is not significantly affected by soil moisture, soil type, soil pH or
microbial activity in the soil.
We use it on our orchids (growing in bark ,mixes) and other exotics growing
in soil. Full strength is 1/4 tsp. per 1" pot size. Sprinkle it on
the top of the potting medium. Do
be careful thoughdonít over fertilize!
