    Ease up on the feed! Plants don't need much when temperatures are low, so the slow-release pellets should be quite enough. Give your plants some fresh, clean water (preferably rainwater) for a while.

      Shouldn't think so, but if the leaves start to turn brown or red, you'll know that the compost needs flushing through with plain water....

      We call it Osmocote, basically it is a controlled fertiliser with various longevities. So, the longevity of Osmocote 5-6 month is determined at 21 celsius. If your growing in a temperature controlled environment of 16 celsius, then the longevity increase's to 6-7 months and if the temperature is 26 celsius, the longevity decreases to 4-5 months.
