Where are people finding osmocote plus?

Looking around at walmart, home depot, ace, lowes, tractor supply I have not seen osmocote plus. Where are you guys finding this product?

You could request a special order. Big box stores usually don't do that but if you have a local gardening center, you could talk to the manager.

Hmmm, wonder if it's a seasonal item or if they were just out? Guy told me "nah, we only carry the regular" n after looking myself I took it as if they don't carry it. I'll have to go back n be more specific then, thanks

You might find a store affiliated with Do It Best Hardware. That's where I got mine. It'll probably be a 4.5# container. Last you a century or two. Go to Doitbest dot com and try the store locator.

How do you use this product? Is it applied as a substrate fertilizer?

yeah you can put it in gel caps, freeze it in ice cubes, or make gelatin cubes with them and use them to fertilize the substrate.
