Hi all,
I came across K***** Bonsai and would like to know the differences and dis/advantages when using Seaweed Fertilizer and Fish Emulsion Fertilizer.

Thanks.

Hi

I use both, Walter Pall school of thought - whatever I can get  Very Happy 

The fish emulsion (seagrow) attracts a lot of lies for about 2 days.

Neither fish emulsion or seaweed fertilizer will have the full regime of trace elements.

I have used the k***** before, at least I think we are speaking of the same product sold for orchids. One of its supposed benefits is the inclusion of plant hormones auxin and cytokinins. I have used this on my orchids and it does stimulate budding. Supposedly, only certain species of kelp have this combo of the hormones.

Thanks, but K***** means Kaizen.

hi

seaweed is a tonic and not a fertiliser - it supplies elements missing in many fertilisers so should be used in addition to your chosen feed

fish emulsion is a very very mild organic fertiliser - it keeps mature refined bonsai very healthy without making them grow too much. we use the emulsion every week on all the trees but in addition to an organic pellet fertiliser - the very old conifers get less pellets and mostly the weekly fish emulsion feed. My emulsion is full strength rather than diluted with water so 5ml in 10 liters is plenty - 5 pence a week for each 10 liter watering can is the cost so very low

if you need feed shipping across Europe i'm happy to help if not available closer to home

hope this helps
