Requesting some help. please NPK of flowers.
« on: February 18, 2015, 07:57 AM »
Folks,

can anyone point me to some readings on the NPK of flowers?

What was done last year, in a 3 gallon bucket, was most of the flowers of a Blackheart Poui, were collected and compressed, then left to compost.
This year the material is nicely matured, still has worms diving through it. About 1.5" off the bottom of the bucket, which has a hole.

Wanting to find out if it can be used like composted rapeseed meal / cake ?

Only reference I could find through Google was a listing of rose petals being high in K.

I also found a little interesting tidbit from Texas University extension - indoor plants do well on just 1N 2P 1K.
Thanks in advance.
Good Day
Anthony

*This tree is smaller but it's a poui.

Jonathan,

you are going to hate me - they use a type of that tree in - Puerto Rico.:)

Additionally, though the yellow poui, needs to be grown to 3 feet [ 1m] to get results, they will flower [ in bunches ] at 4 inches or so.
You can also look at - Tecoma stans.
Good Day
