Re: Sea Grow plus feritlizer

I've only used the Sea Grow Plus, and, yes, it does have an odor, but it
disipates reasonably quickly.  I decided to use the Plus, even though it
costs just a little more because it offers more than regular Sea Grow.  SG
(1-1-1) is a seaweed extract ; SG+  (2-1-2) contains both the seaweed and
fish emulsion.  Nitrogen and Potassium going from a 1 to a 2 doesn't look
like much, but that is 100% more of these macronutrients.  Phosphorous is
also increased, but I think in SG it may have been less than 1 and rounded
up, while in SG+ it is greater than 1 but not quite enough to round the
number up.  (This rounding up on SG may also apply to its N and K since SG's
description doesn't even discuss macronutrients)Both ingredients contain
trace minerals and the seaweed includes micronutrients and amino acids.

I felt that SG+ would be a more well-rounded fertilizer.  However, you may
not need that or wish to provide macronutrients another way.  You could try
them both out by order only a quart to see what you think.  You might
consider calling Frank Finger and asking his opinion.  He has always been
agreeable to answering questions.  It's not a toll free number for technical
assistance, but may be worth it.  Or, you could try the toll-free order line
and see if the order-taker might have an answer for you.
