My brinjal plant is laden with tiny brinjals. The plant is in a pot. How often do I feed it so that it does not lack nutrients ?

Hi SowerGrower:

You have asked the 'million dollar question' that all of us face and find very confusing! ( Hopefully rightly) I use 19:19:19 NPK + Muriate of Potash + Calcium Nitrate. Once in a while I add a little Magnesium Sulphate. After all this I am just keeping my fingers crossed!! PLEASE don't replicate before confirming its correctness from GG. If you do that, I will also benefit!! Regards.

When following purely organic ways the results can wary sometimes widely based on the compost, vermicompost and other organic manure you use. But with these precision fertilizers like NPK etc. the chances of failure are low. The timing of when to use a particular fertilizer and the right quatity is all that need to taken care off.

I am new to all this. So, please forgive if I am asking dumb questions. NPK, Potash, Sulphates - putting all these does it make it unhealthy or rather not the best eatable veg/fruit. I mean does it make a "non-organic" way of cultivation?
