We made some root cuttings and separated some crowns of my Mexican honeysuckle. We're going to talk about watering and possible fertilization. This is one of my favorite organic types it's a follier, a soil fertilizer. You can use it on transplants, use it on cuttings, you can use it on just about anything that I'm going to add to my water. Ordinarily seeds we wouldn't fertilize right away we're going to rely on the more of the fertility of the potting soil to provide the fertility for the seeds to establish a root system. But these plants are cuttings of crowns that already have roots systems and so we want to get them growing but we don't want to burn off any feeder roots. So we're going to use a very mild of this stuff according to label recommendation, I'm going to put about a 3/4 of an ounce of this particular product and a gallon of water. I'm going to give it a stir.
