By pouring the concentrate on the medium first, the plants are absorbing it full strength.

If you are using it once a week, I would suggest no more than 1/4 ml/L.
Ohh ok I see, Iíll dilute it before I use it next time. Hopefully my plant will flower again. Thanks!

Don't look for an immediate turnaround. Several years ago I determined that I was overfeeding my plants, so cut way back, as I have suggested for you, and it took about 6-8 months before I started to notice any change.

Just saw a new spike on my tetraspis today! Hopefully there will be a flower on this one

My tetraspis is finally pushing out the buds from the bracts! Itís also forming another spike by its side. I Guess the reason why it kept on blasting itís buds before they can grow out of the bracts was due to insufficient light. About 2 weeks ago when the existing spikes had already started growing and forming the bracts, I bought a full spectrum led grow light and placed it under and now itís finally spiking and developing the buds
