Can Peters Professional 20-20-20 General Purpose Fertilizer be applied using a hose attached lawn sprayer?

If yes, what is the amount of fertilizer do I use? I have orchid plants hanging outside that I want to spray. Some are up high and hard to reach. I don't need a lot...maybe up to 5 gallons. Thanks for your help!


The Peters Professional 20-20-20 General Purpose Fertilizer 25 lb. (E99290) should be applied using a hand pump sprayer versus a hose end applicator for a precise treatment on the surfaces. You will mix one ounce per gallon of water. Please refer to the product label for complete application instructions.
