In case of repotting into bigger pots, dilution effect should be compensated by increasing dosage rate in fresh growing medium. The recommended rates above are based on unfertilized substrates. These are general recommendations. Adjust for specific situations, such as use in tunnels or greenhouses, or specific climate conditions.
