Fertlizers for Tillandsia NPK

I have been trying to research on suitable Fertilizers for Tillandsia in an open Terrarium.

I have found these NPK 2 0-10-20, 20-20-20, 20-10-30

After speaking (per phone) to one of the largest manufacturers in Australia the best they can offer is a powder mix of 25-5-8.5,

I am interested to know what you are using brand name will not help me but it will help other members.

Also strengths used and how often.

I am not sure where your NPK numbers come from (especially that 20-20-20). Good orchid/epiphyte fertilizers can be seen at First Rays LLC (website: First Rays) including K-Lite, SOLO-e and Michigan State University Fertilizers. These are fertilizers made specifically for epiphites. Maybe you can contact Ray the owner and ask about dealers in Australia. His opinion is very trusted in orchid circles. (Tillansias similar because they are CAM plants and also epiphytes)
