Monterey Fish and Guano previously known as Monterey Fish and Poop is a concentrated organic fertilizer made of liquid fish and sea bird guano. It can be used as a soil drench or foliar spray (diluted in water) and is great for houseplants and ornamentals. The bat guano has a high concentration of necessary plant nutrients and is fast acting, and the fish fertilizer is a slower release and stays in the soil for a long period of time.
Fish & Poop may be applied as a foliar spray or soil drench. Shake well before mixing and keep solution mixed well during application. Do not store mixed solutions. Apply in early morning or late afternoon to avoid leaf damage.
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including arsenic, cadmium and lead, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to https://www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
I use 1 Oz per gallon and spray 32 gal. on my lawn every 2 weeks in the spring and in the fall. My back yard is approx. 32,000 sq. ft. My lawn is tall fescue. This product keeps my lawn green without having to cut every 2-3 days like highly N based urea sprays. Do not worry about the immediate smell, as the product dries, the smell is gone.
Over many years I have used the popular fertilizers on my indoor plants. I then started using Fish and Poop fertilizer and the growth of my plants is amazing. I have an indoor Begonia that is now growing as fast a weed. Tomatoes have been planted in my yard and I know they will be bigger than last years crop using FandP fertilizer. My relatives have been using this fertilizer upon my recommendation, their plants are thriving. It is expensive but worth it!
How much Monterey Fish & Guano for one rose plant?
The Monterey Fish & Guano fertilizer, like many shrub/flower fertilizers, is only going to give you a rate you should use per gallon of water. The manufacture is unable to determine what each individual end users soil quality will be, size of plant, or watering needs. As long as you are watering your plants as normal and applying the correct amount of solution per gallon, the specific amount you use per plant is not needed in most instances. They do seem to indicate when using it as a drench to use the entire gallon of water in the soil, and to use it every 14 days. However many gallons of water it typically takes you to adequately water/feed your roses, is how much you would still use, just with the appropriate amount of fertilizer per gallon of water as instructed on the label.
It's a slow and fast release formula. I'm concerned about the fast release part as it appears hydrangeas need slow release.
Yes, you can use Fish and Poop on Hydrangeas. Use ½ fl. oz. per gallon of water or ½ pint (8 fl. oz.) in hose-end sprayer. Apply monthly during growing season. Also, be sure to apply in early morning or late afternoon.
