you should be able to give it a teaspoon per gallon water every time you water it with no problems during the summer months when it's actively growing. During the winter months, less fertilizer is required, like if it's still growing slowly then give it like 1/4 t fertilizer per gallon of water. Then in the spring as it starts growing again increase it. But don't overwater it in the winter. It's a lot harder to overwater in the summer!

Most of the nitrogen and some of the other nutrients will be lost to the air. You need to 1st dissolve it in water.
