    Hey everyone,

    I was at Home Depot recently and I seen a bag of Kellogg Starter Fertilizer. It seems to have a lot of good stuff in it: dried poultry waste, feather meal, bone meal, kelp meal, alfalfa meal, mycorrhizae, ectomycorrhizae, along with a few other minerals. I decided to pick some up and I made it into a tea.

    The directions call for mixing one cup with one gallon of warm water for foliar feeding. Since this is the first time I'm using this fertilizer, I mixed it with two gallons of warm water. The tea still looks really dark at half strength.

    I haven't seen anyone recommend this brand yet. I was reading that Kellogg company is based in Ontario, California. It's a family run company and they have ties to the original Kellogg who started the cereal.

    I've bought their Patio Plus soil at Home Depot which from the ingredients has pretty much all the same stuff FoxFarm Ocean Forest has, but costs $6.00US. I also bought another bag of Kellogg soil for my outside grow. Mushrooms started to appear a few weeks after I throw it down, which was a nice bonus, and my plants (carrots, snow peas, lettuce, and cat grass) and really thriving in it.

    If anyone picks this up or has used this in the past, I'd like to hear your opinion on it.

    Hmm seems as though it would be fine, though I have never tried this so I could not say. Since it is organic and all the ingredients are natural your chance of burning your plants are a lot less than a chemical fertilizer. I would start at 1/4 dose, gauge how your plants respond and work your way up to full feeding. I recently bought a 50 pound bag of something similar to this, it's a dry fertilizer meant to be mixed into the soil and slowly releases itself. http://www.norganics.com/products/fertilizers/progro.html Good luck on your grow
