Unlike micronized water soluble kelp that is offered in some of our products, kelp meal is best used as an amendment, for topdressing or to make nutrient teas. We recommend you have kelp both in your potting mix, as well as used as a topdressing agent. This will ensure the plant has ample access to all the benefits kelp provides.
