I bought a new fertilizer for my Carmona Retusa, but I'm not sure if it is ok? How does fertilizing work do I give it when it needs water, after I watered it, etc.?

Hey, I believe you mix 5ml of the fertilizer with 1 litre of water and apply that mixture once a week. At least according to the instructions.

I’ve also read about dosing a lesser amount daily / more often so long as you don’t go over the recommended amount per week.

Perhaps someone with more knowledge on the matter will chime in.

Good luck!

The main difference is that you pay the same price for ordinary fertilizer, 1 liter, as for Bonsai fertilizer, 250 ml....

The instructions hoe to use it are on the bottle

The instructions there are fairly generic. You might want to read up on your particular species, see what it needs, and fertilize according to that. Most trees, of course, take generic feeding, but some might be emphasize different times. They might say generically, don't feed during dormant periods. Pay attention to the tree to know when it is dormant; don't count on it to watch the calendar and obey it.
