► While we have been a registered nursery for almost 20 years, First Rays is proud to announce that we are now approved and licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to produce our own fertilizers and soil & plant amendments (like stimulants), making us unique in the arena of orchid supplies vendors.
► If you have read the "What do Orchids Eat?" article by Rick Lockwood in the March AOS Orchids
magazine, you can buy the K-Lite fertilizer from us, as we are the sole distributor. K-Lite is formulated to closely match the chemistry of rainfall cascading from the forest canopy where epiphytes originate.
► With our recent licensing, mentioned above, we have registered two fertilizer/growth stimulant products, now also approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture:
- SOLO, our proprietary blend of MSU fertilizer and KelpMax plant growth stimulant for general use, and a new version,
- SOLO-e, based upon the K-Lite fertilizer formula and designed specifically for epiphytes.
Both versions of SOLO will be available shortly, as soon as they can be packaged and labeled.
