I use the armor si in the second watering of the stretch. Combining the two in one drench I like. More calcium? Yes please
Can you go into more detail about pot size, plant size, how much you water in? Any photos? That is in the neighborhood of 850 ppm N...literally 10 times the normal amount of fish I use... I did a test on one plant at your rate...all is well. You can use fish and build a fully balanced 1-1-1 around it with other amendments including Ca and micros... pretty simple to put together depending on the needs.
Since you asked...
3/4 gallon H20
11.5 grams 2-3-1 fish
2.4 grams 32% lime
.012 grams borax (make a concentrate @1.5 grams/gallon,use 2 TBL concentrate per 1 gallon foliar mix)
.4 grams agsil
Fill to 1 gallon.
How I make it...
1.Take a 1 quart ball jar, add lime and 3/4qt h20. Add 5 grams citric acid, it will bubble. Stir for a few minutes. Add a couple grains of citric acid and see if it reacts. If so, add more slowly until reaction stops. This is how I chelate the Ca.
2. Fill a gallon jug with h20,fish,Ca solution. Shake shake shake.
3. Add the 2 TBL B concentrate. shake
4. Add agsil to 1/4 cup h20, stir, then add to final mix. Shake
5. Fill to 1 gallon
I use between .25 - 1 oz / sqft of canopy depending on frequency of application.
ppm is roughly 65-42-50 NPK B@.35 Ca@200 Si@26
Only additional foliar I can recommend is Mn. .4 grams/gallon = 35 ppm. I use that during heavy growth also.
Any criticism is welcome.
