Ken Landon Waterlily Fertilizer
A 1 Lb. package will treat 3-8 Full size plants for 3 months (80-90 days) per treatment in a 1 or 2 gallon planting container (hardy waterlilies need larger containers than tropical waterlilies) or twice that number of young plants. This granular fertilizer utilizes binary technology to help plants absorb available nutrients. Reduces the amount of fertilizer needed to get newly potted plants off to a rapid start. Pond tablets are often 50% or more clay. This is 100% fertilizer. We recommend 1/2 the dose on the package on young plants or plants in water over 75 degrees. Treat every 80-90 days so 2 treatments per plant should be enough for the spring & summer. Ken Landon runs the international waterlily collection in San Angelo Texas. Ken has about 2000 varieties and about 50 species of waterlily. This is the fertilizer he has used to display plants for decades and nothing compares to his formula.
Follow the directions carefully and do not over dose. Using too much of this formula can burn the roots of the plant.
Landon Aquatic Fertilizer is a combination of organic and inorganic ingredients that work together to create spectacular results. It is a very ‘hot’ formula that requires very strict adherence to the directions for use. In using this formula we suggest that you combine the appropriate amount of fertilizer with soil and fill your container half full, then a thin layer of soil only. Add the tuber and cover with (unfertilized) soil.
