I am about to plant annuals in wire/coconut baskets. Is 5-1-1 OK for this application? Sorry about the duplicate entry!!!!

Coco liners with gritty mix. They don't look like much yet but the one has new growth in the foreground and the other one was a nub a month ago when I planted them. They are varieties of Agapetes so they like well drained soil. So I think if you didn't want to water as much 5-1-1 would work just fine.

PS that fig tree in the bamboo planter in the background is one big 5-1-1 mound.
