Every other day, but I might switch to daily soon (or just swap out one of the plants that isn't doing good).

I try and dose daily.... more realistically every ohter day. I have found recently that less is better. YMMV.

I too dry dose daily - though I'll admit that sometimes I'll have to double-up & dose micros and macros the same day when I forget to dose one the previous day.
