Maxsea 16-16-16 is a kelp-based fertilizer safe to use on many types of carnivorous plants (see exceptions below). It is so gentle it can even be used on live sphagnum moss! Maxsea comes in powder form and is best used as a foliar fertilizer.¬†Foliar feeding is beneficial if the plants aren’t catching enough bugs on their own as it helps to make up for lost nutrients. To foliar feed carnivorous plants and boost growth, mix 1/4 of a teaspoon per gallon of water and lightly mist leaves with it every 3-4 weeks.

The smallest commercially available size of Maxsea comes in 1.5 lb containers (about 2 1/2 cups). At the recommended 1/4 tsp strength this is enough to make over 480 gallons of fertilizer. Obviously this is enough to last several lifetimes for most carnivorous plant growers. For this reason, we offer Maxsea in convenient 1 tablespoon quantities which is enough to make 12 gallons of fertilizer.

Species Exceptions:

We have found the following carnivorous plants to be especially sensitive even when applying 1/4 strength Maxsea fertilizer. These species may benefit from further dilution or using another feeding method: Drosera sessilifolia, Drosera slackii.
