Your plants will stop growing when the GROUND temps are below freezing.
Soil temperatures are usually15-20 degrees warmer for a period of time when fall rolls around
For me that is in December.
Basjoos and Mekongs (and many other plants) still grow when air temps dip to near freezing.
A lot still happens underground .

Feel free to fertilize..... water solubles are a good choice.


You /me still have at least 50 days of grow time left for these plants


Your choice... these plants know when to stop.

I didn't see this. I feel it's too late now, fall has swung in with a vengeance.

I've had a lot of issues using this website. I will get an email that some responded to my post, but the website will only load sometimes. It's strange.

Me too.
The site has some issues.
It works a few days a week for me.
It does not matter what device or Ip address is used.

A number of local basjoo/rose growers will fertilize very early spring before there is growth.
Because once the soil warms a bit the plants break dormancy and start the new years roots.
A granular garden fertilizer will work well.
