What fertilizer do you use for your container pond plants?

5 years ago

I have several of my lotus and water lilies in 7 gallon containers. I usually put 4 tablets of Aquatic Tabs by AgSafe in every 3 weeks. That seemed to be enough, for most of them. But, I just read the label on the stuff I've been using and it says 2 tablets for every gallon. ??? That would be 14 tabs in each container. Maybe I've switched brands over the years and didn't read the most recent jar of tablets. Now I'm thinking a different ferilizer would be better that had more stuff in it and I wouldn't have to add so many. I do use fruit tree spikes, about 4-5 at a time every few weeks in my 300 gallon lotus bog.
