    JBL Ferropol

    Hi, I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I have some JBL Ferropol liquid fertilizer, and I can't for the life of me remember how often I'm supposed to add it to the tank. I think it's weekly, but don't want to start pouring it in willy-nilly :oops: Help please :wave: Cheers Richard
