MALORGANITE to start with, planted with organic miracle grow, mixed with sand and perlite and MG moisture control. Then later something with the micro nutrients in it. Maybe a mg fertilizer spike which has it, or ironite fertilizer,(has micro but its not slow release).
The MALORGANITE is 5.0%-2.0-4.0 with 1.2% calcium and 4.0% iron(slow release) The MG spikes are 15-5-10 (slow release). And the ironite is 12-10-10 (direct release).

Oh ok. My EV'S have been a little slow also. They are potted and outside, but the weather hasn't been the best of what they thrive in. The reason i ask is cause they claim the EG is cold hardy and i'm looking for someone who can back that up. If not i'll have to decide whether to dig it up or let it ride. Personally i would rather leave it out there. But since they don't sucker i kinda hate to grow it just to watch it die! IDK yet.
