Organic gardening Nutrient the Mittleider method way

Hi again Jim forgot this question.

My Aunt has a number of containers she plants in (10). I was talking to her about the nutrients and she was interested in using them.

From my understanding, using the nutrients with water is as effective as mixing the weekly feed and using that, is that correct?

Could she simply add 2 tsp per gallon of the nutrients and water her
contaners daily as usual?

Many people do not realize they have the option of mixing the
nutrients with water and using them with their house plants and
outdoor container plants.

Am I correct on this?

Steve and Group:

You are correct. You can use the Mittleider Weekly Feed as a "Constant Feed Solution" in the greenhouse, in containers, or even in your soil-bed garden.

The amount to use is 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) in 3 gallons, which is the same as 2 teaspoons in one gallon. Or if you are feeding larger areas, use 10 ounces in 30 gallons.
