Re: fertillizer in potted plant
Forgot to mention that I've decided that it's too hard (for me) to grow all organic in a closed system.
While plants in the yard have access to a wide compliment of fungi, protozoa, bacteria, ..... and can pull nutrients from a ways away, the resources of containerized plants are limited (IMO).
So now I'm throwing nutrients at [the potted plants] and they seem content.
I could feed a lot of tea and buy organic feeds, but I'm growing on the cheap and and lazy so it's slow release for my potted stuff, and the yard plants are on their own.
