Here in New England, the weather is just starting to get cooler. I know about gradually reducing the amount of fertilzer until I stop it completely by the end of November. This question is directed for Ray- I’ve started using your culture protocol and I’m not sure what to do about using Kelpmax and Quantum Total. Do I stop them as well? Thanks Judith

First of all, I don’t vary my nutrient and additive regimen seasonally.

If plants are actively growing, the need to be fed.

Quantum is certainly a year-long treatment. So is Kelpak, as long as your plants don’t have a distinct “rest” period, like catasetinae or some dendrobiums.
