Calcified seaweed granules

Post  Mike Jones on Sun Jan 30, 2011 12:13 pm

Anyone offer any ideas why this is not suitable for use with acid loving or Ericaceous species?

I'm a bit stumped as to why. I've used it many times in the past on acid loving and have enjoyed some very healthy looking colours over the years.

The word "calcified" may hold a hint.

Hi Jim

Are you making reference to lime salts and the intolerance of same to acid loving?

Yup. Anything that is "calcified" is unlikely to be good for ericacious plants.
