EC exchange in the root zone

(Bill Daniels) #1

So if your fertilizing your bonsai with [liquid fertilizer] — and your soil is 90% dry would the ion exchange of the fertilizer be hamper a bit, because the soil 's dryness. Verses if the soil was semi-moist when you fertilize where the ion exchange is helped by the slight moister of the soil. Is there any literature out there to support it or not.?

No idea if there’s literature on this. 90% dry sounds too dry. I tend to water before fertilizing to avoid damaging the roots.
