finding a high liquid nitrogen source

Post  has55 on 7/3/2017, 8:10 pm

Does anyone know of a liquid nitrogen fertilizer that is high like 12-14. I want to push my ornamental okra and don't want fruit. so far they are working, but want to ensure the growth is achieved.

Liquid fish emulsion. Try a hydroponics or "cash crop" store if you can't find it at your nursery.

How about actual liquid nitrogen? That was a joke, lol, I couldn't resist. Anyone remember the liquid nitrogen scene from Terminator 2?

the highest nitrogen rating I can find on fish emulsion is 5. I'm looking for 12-14 like feather meal.

Feather meal is not instantly available. I thought you were looking for a liquid? Feed a lower number more often??

You are right feather meal is slow release. I am looking for a liquid as high as 12-14, like the solid form of feather meal. 
Feather Meal 12.8-0-0 (50 Lb).

I would think a liquid nitrogen source that high in nitrogen would likely cause nitrogen burn very easily. It might be why it's difficult for you to find. /shrug

I'm with Yolos and CapeCoddess.  Urine, the 'liquid amber' is full of nitrogen but also various other goodies.  Should not be wasted.  Mix one pint to two gallons of water.  It makes everything grow like crazy.    It is delivered ready for use several times a day.
Sterile at point of production.  Used fresh very little smell.

Why don't you just get Miracle Grow (or knock-off)?
24-8-16. Foliage feed 1x a week and call it a day...If you're wanting blooms, you can supplement in some phosphates in the same fashion.


If you want to empty your pockets, get this and let me know the results.

I personally use Miracle Grow or similar all the time outside the sfg. It's relatively cheap, easy to use, and best part I can tell my wife or kids to pick some up without a lot of explaining.

I'm going to try the urine. It free. level 11% poured over the mulch. Rooster the coron is something else, 28% in liquid. wow!. Thanks for the suggestion and finding it, But it out my wallet league. I considered the miracle gro in the past but felt the phosphorus might cause it to bloom. once started I may not be able to stop the blooming. so far the okra still growing without blooms.
