Feeding, Ferts, Lights schedule

I feed the fish in the AM, part of a morning routine. Lights are on in the afternoon & evening, along with CO2.

When should I add ferts, morning after a feed, or when lights are on, or does it matter?

So long as you get the fertz to the plant's I really don't think it matters.
I dose my fertz at night but only because I use spoons and just toss the dry fertz in the tank.
If I do it during lights on,the fish try and eat the dry fertilizers.(always hungry).
