Time/Uptake of liquid fertiliser?

    1 responses

sserendipityy starts with ...
With all this rain lately I no sooner get the plants fed with Seasol, and it rains.

My question is how long does it take for plants to use the available nutrients in the liquid fertiliser? And does it differ depending on the nutrient - for instance I applied liquid potash to my passionfruit this morning also.

I also use compost and sugar cane mulch. I created a worm farm yesterday also... so other nutrients are available...in different guises.

Thank you :-)

It depends on what breakdown processes must occur before the basic nutrients become available sserendipityy. For instance, in my hydroponic setup, all nutrients are in solution at the nutrient level making it all instantly available at the roots for the plants nutrient needs. If you have the nutrient mix right, the plants grow at their maximum rate because everything is there at their beck and call. The only drawback to the hydro system is, of course, you must replentish the nutrients daily.
Anything more complex like compost manures etc, break down over a longer period of time.
