    I have some powdered trace fertiliser from TNC. Trying to work out what to add in say a 500ml spray bottle of cooled boiled water to make a occasional spray foliar feed for emmersed growth plants. Guessing just a pinch ?

    I'm not sure about that. But I've used dilute TNC Complete for folia feeding a dry start, 3mls in 1 litre of water. I remember feeling my way cautiously since if the mix is too strong it'll burn the plants.

    I would be on the side of playing it safe. I have three terrariums and all I ever do is just plain tap water as required.
