Osmocote Plus

I saw and bought a 2 lb. bottle of osmocote plus today at walmart.

I only mention it because I have seen in various posts that its hard to find unless you buy a giant commercial bag. So, if anyone has mentioned this, sorry, I just saw it and figured I would post it.

Cheers

Thanks for the tip! It seems like the plus is coming back on the market, but I have read that it is not the same blend that it used to be, supposedly its missing the calcium and a few other things but not sure on that. I also have been using the new osmocote plus for my root tabs and they seem to be working well! I have distributed a few hundred to some friends as well and have heard good things back. How much did you pay for it at walmart? Cheapest I've seen it for was $7.50 but I think it was on sale, that was at Lowes about a month ago.

In the meantime, you can always put it in ice cubes. I did that for my first couple of batches
