  • For Seeds: Place seeds in starter cells; cover with soil to the recommended depth for the seed type; gently pour Protilizer® solution from a water can. Keep moist and apply weekly. Apply every two weeks for 2 to 3 applications then move to once a month.
  • For Maintenance of Established Plants: Apply once a month. If plants are stressed due to transplant, repotting or environmental issues, apply every two weeks for 2 applications, once a month there after.
