I was wondering exactly what concentration of Miracid you were using.
The directions on the box suggest different concentrations depending
on what you are doing. If memory serves me right, its 1/4 teaspoon
per gallon if you are using the fertilizer everytime you water. Its
quite a bit higher concentration if you are using the fertilizer
as a one-shot deal administered every so often. I'm not clear which
dosage you are taking the quarter strength of. Could you clear
this up please.
