Anyone used it?

Someone gave me a big box of the stuff and I'm curious to see if anyone here has advice/warnings.

I've never used this stuff before. :)

It appears to be similar to any number of other soluble plant fertilizers. Would you like to tell us the ingredients on the label?

My only advice about fertilizers is that you understand the needs of your plants and how the product is directed to be used.

It's 24 8 16 if that helps like a teaspoon per gallon but I'm thinking I will make it weaker than that for regular watering.

If you don't have anything sensitive to fertilizer then as long as it is diluted more than what the directions suggest it will probably be fine. Then again, I don't know what you have :/

Asleep, does it contain any minor elements?
