Default Question

Hey guys, Just wanna ask if i use foliar fertilizers do i have to flush it with water the next few times i water? I read a site which flushes their plants after fert but i'm not sure if its for root fert or foliar fert cause i flushed my plants the next day after i fertilized them.

I don't think you need to flush the media if you only do foliar fertilizing once or twice a month. Not unless you apply foliar fertilizing every other day... or did you??

Hey robert, I used the fish emulsion for foliar last week...diluted a lot of course. I was planning too only use it 3-4 months once I mean flush the leaves like don't want the residue on it etc etc. What i'm worried now is that i sprayed the fert of before it could do anything haha.

I don't think you need to flush away unless you put a concentrated amount of foliage fert. If rain hits your plants in your condo Ken, then that would be flushing off, isn't it?
