Fertilizer tab timing. How often?

I have been using Gro-power tabs, 12-8-8 time release with micros.

I am wondering, those of you who use osmocote+, or other time release tabs under substrate, how frequently do you pop them in? What do you check to tell if they are out of steam or not?

I've been doing about every 3 months.

Osmocote fallen out of favor as of late?

I'm curious of the same question. I use Osmocote+ in 0 caps and have been waiting about 3 months between changes, but have no idea if that's too slow or too quick. I have not noticed any change in growth as I change them out though, so I'm betting on "just right".
