Greeting fellow gardners,

Pictures of various flowers plants i am growing is available in album: https://plus.google.com/photos.....4074909857

 

How can i increase flower yield? I see many flower in small plants in nursery. I regularly water, add vermiculite and compost to plants. I was also adviced to add NPK, i could only source NPK 10:22:16 . How much i shall add? I am also getting advices to add DAP but i read it is not good 

 

Please share you experiences

All nursery vendors recommend "spoonful of DAP" every two weeks and a generous dose of medicines. It might increase the flower yield temporarily, but I am not sure this is sustainable because DAP will cause salt build up in the soil.

 

Thanks
