  1. I find it odd that any fertilizer would help with germination. Anyhow the
    beans given the seaweed do look healthier than the ones without,

  2. I’m in no way saying seaweed extract is not beneficial, but I thought that
    you arent really supposed to feed seedlings for the first week or two. I
    was under the impression that the plant is at its weakest and most
    vulnerable point making it super easy to cause a nutrient burn and stunt
    growth. I also thought that all the food the plant would need untill the
    first true leaves appear is contained in the cotyledon as well. would it be
    more beneficial as a foliar spray rather than a root drench?

  3. we are an authorised sea weed cultivators and we have got right of the
    patent done by csmcri of gujarat which has got the US, Europe and chinese
    patent of seaweed fertilizer. And we are suppliers of the fertilizer it
    would cost just 5$/ltr. this seaweed is not a secret of grandpa because
    there are too many species with respect to geographical distribution. But
    this is an old method or there is a paticular type of seaweed which has
    given better results and proven by CSMCFRI

  4. Good point to make, I’m sure it was deluted down but your absoulutely right
    about feeding beano’s cause they are well equipted to handle life however
    the growing hormones in seaweed really gives the seedling a boost.

  5. I think the best way to use seaweed fertilizer is to use it to soak the
    seeds overnight, the natural Gibberellins in seaweed will help in
    germination, after the plant is established, foliar spray and soil drenches
    are ok. seaweed also has auxins, and cytokinins, and of course minerals.
    after soaking seeds, you can also inoculate them with beneficial fungi and
    bacteria. things like beans have special inoculates that fix nitrogen.

  10. Growers using our fish/seaweed blend fertilizer on a regular basis have
    reported increased marketable yields and improved shelf life on fruits and
    vegetables. Fish and Seaweed are known to build the natural sugar in
    plants. Flowers and foliage will be stronger and more colorful. Blooms will
    be more plentiful, fragrant and longer lasting.
