How to apply Mega Thrive
Mega Thrive is a foliar spray. It’s also a concentrate, so you have to dilute it. The suggested dilution rate is 3 ounces (or 6 tablespoons) of Mega Thrive per 1 gallon of water. If you have a large collection of “hard leaf” orchids like cattleyas, vandas and cymbidiums, you can use a hose end sprayer like Ortho’s Dial ‘n Spray. Set the sprayer to the 3 ounce ratio and fill the canister with Mega Thrive.
For “soft leaf” orchids like phaleanopsis, paphiopedilums, or miniatures, or just a small collection of plants, use a Hudson sprayer or tank sprayer. As mentioned previously, use 3 ounces of Mega Thrive per 1 gallon of clean water.
In both cases, spray the tops and undersides of the leaves Spray enough so that you see runoff. Repeat application every 2 weeks, for about 2 months for the fastest results. Store any unused Mega Thrive solution in a cool, shaded area.
Mega Thrive reduces transplant shock. When repotting a plant, or receiving a bare root plant that needs to be potted up, clean the roots of all old media. Then spray the roots with the 3 oz to 1 gallon of water solution of Mega Thrive. Once the plant is potted up, spray the entire plant with the Mega Thrive solution until you see runoff.
