Thanks for reviving this thread. Coffee will become part of my regimine very soon.
Do you think this would be beneficial to species like northiana?? Don't tjey live in lime stone areas? Making it more alkoline? Or am i off base?
lol same here, David. Nothing like a cup of bold dark robust coffee you could arguably consume with a fork..I did, however, dilute the coffee a bit, simply because my tastes run toward the pitch black with roughly the texture of gelatin.
I've been told not to do it so much. I've been doing it once a month. I've done it twice so far. It's been three weeks and I got a bunch of new plants and I'm eager to do this again, as its helped out a ton with sphagnum. I always do a flush two days after. How does it sound if I did once every three weeks for six weeks, then I bumped it up to once every two weeks?
I see that your pots are growing that green/carpet/non-sphagnum moss (don't know what it is); have you noticed an increase in it since using the coffee? I never had it in my pots until I began coffee fertilization and have been in the habit of pulling it out wherever it appears. Looking at your pots, however, it seems like it's sort of a non-issue.
