Cheap Foliar Nutrient For Very Pale Plant
I have one plant that is very spindly and pale yellowish compare to the others. I switched brands of liquid fertilizers this time but, other than my screw-ups, most are doing reasonably well, considering I tend to kill everything that's green.
After following directions from the nutrient maker, a well-respected high-end brand who shall remain nameless, nothing improved. So out of desperation I decided to go foliarly chemical on that one plant.
I bought a cheap generic version of Miracle Grow soluble high nitrogen granules (24/8/16), mixed it a bit weak, moved the plant out of direct sunlight into bright open shade, and sprayed it liberally. After it dried I moved it back into bright direct sunlight. After a few hours it already looked a tiny bit better. I'll spray it again in the morning before putting it in direct sunlight.
I thought I'd done something goofy with soil or nutrient PH but since this seems to be working I'm wondering if this plant dislikes this brand of nutrients.
Am I crazy or just stupid?
