        Application rates

        Recommended application rates for pot plants: 

        • Light feeding: 2g/l
        • Normal feeding: 2-2.5g/l
        • Heavy feeding: 3-3.5g/l

        ATTENTION! Maximum recommended starter fertilizer dosage in the growing medium is 0.5 kg/m3. Rates for Osmocote® 5 are based on pot volumes. In case of repotting into bigger pots, dilution effect should be compensated by increasing dosage rate in fresh growing medium. The recommended rates above are based on unfertilized substrates. These are general recommendations. Adjust for specific situations, such as use in tunnels or greenhouses, or specific climate conditions. This product is not recommended for dibbling and/or autumn/winter potting. Trial first on a small scale before changing the rate, application, or any other variables.
