Norman's Optimal Orchid Nutrients

Dr. Bill's Orchids, LLC

Regular price $11.95

  • Description

Over the years, I have tried a number of fertilizers ranging from Miracle Gro to MSU to Jungle Jacks, etc. All of them have given results, but none have given results quite like Norman's Optimal Orchid Nutrients fertilizer. 

20-16-15 N-P-K ratio + Micronutrients.

Size: 1 pound Jar

What makes it better than the others in my opinion?

  • Most important- better and more consistent growth
  • This doesn't just have to be used for orchids- I use it on ALL of my plants, even the ones outside!
  • Very fine crystalline powder structure allows for easy dissolving into solution
  • Doesn't leave huge salt splotches on leaves
  • Non-urea Nitrogen
  • Complete with micronutrients
  • Long shelf life without clumping (when not kept open in greenhouse conditions)

How do I use it?

 While the directions on the label say to feed every 2 weeks with 1 tsp/gal

  • Because I actually feed almost every watering, so I use a less concentrated solution by changing the ratio to 1/4 tsp fertilizer powder per gallon and water 2-3 times per week. 
  • I use it year-round on any plants that are getting fertilizer- makes it easy to not have to switch things up based on time of year.
