Default Miracle Grow Fert.

Does anyone out there use Miracle Grow Fertilizer on their orchids. If so, are you pleased with the results?

I like MSU, but any fert will work as long as you don't use such high concentrations as to "burn" the roots of your orchids, and as long as it has all the micro nutrients along with the macro. But, there are a lot of opinions on fertilizers, so brace yourself lol

Yes, I have been using Miracle Grow orchid fertilizer. I have not had any complaints about it so far.

Question on Miracle gro for orchids and Miracle gro for acid loving plants when its all the same and we pay more for the word Orchid or am I missing some thing? the Guaranteed analysis is the same on both its even the same on Jacks Classic orchid food all are 30 10 10.
I have used miracle gro on my orchids but it didn't seem to be any better than jacks classic orchid food

A lap is a terrible thing to waste. Don't let yours go unfilled
