It appears that Osmocote PLUS is difficult to locate in many parts of the country. I ordered on line/mail order and spent an extra $9.00 for shipping. Afterwards, I discovered that the product is available from Ace Hardware. Your local store probably does not have it but you can get it shipped free to the store. To do this, go to acehardware.com and type in osmocote in the product search. DO NOT type in osmocote plus (you will incorrectly get a Product not Found message) When you get the page displaying the products, lo and behold Osmocote Plus will be the first one listed. You can then add it to your cart and select Free Shipping to my store. IF YOUR STORE is NOT listed, then just call the 800 number and they will ship it to your home free!
I've recently returned to the hobby and enjoyed reading the posts on this site. Thanks to those who go out of their way to help fellow hobbyists. I'm glad to be able to provide a bit of info for others.
Now, for providing this information, can someone tell me how long between putting doses of the product into the substrate (kitty litter in my case?) weeks/months?

Some day I hope to understand at least 20% of what I think I know. And maybe someone can explain the other 60% to me.
