I'm in the same spot somewhat; I have 4 very young maurellis purchased from members here; they're just now fully established and growing well (slow and steady). A bit of color, at the tip mostly. Going into the fall with cooler temps, I haven't yet fed these young plants as I'm clueless with regards to fertilizing, and don't want to risk burning their young roots.

I have water soluble medium-low-high fertilizer, recommended dosage at 2 tbps./2 gallon container. Do I feed ALL plants with 1 2-gallon container? I've seen my diplania blooms leached out from deep blood red maroon after being fed (with the same 2 gallon container with recommend dosage; I mean i fed ALL plants with the same water--not just the diplania).

How would experienced growers here feed these 4 plus 2 other very small plants--using a 2 gallon container?
