I have a question for those who have used BAP.

I have a small bottle and was planning on trying it on a few plants once the weather cools slightly. I have been reading quite a bit and it seems that proper fertilizing is important once BAP is applied. I was wondering what fertilizing program people were using when they have successfully used BAP?

I've never read that about proper fertilizing once BAP is applied, but I would assume since the plant is being forced to grow and multiply it would certainly need proper nutrition to help keep it healthy. On the few plants I've used it on I just keep with my normal fertilizing program and use what I normally fertilize with on a regular basis (every couple of weeks), Miracle-Gro all purpose water soluable fertilzer (the one with the 24-8-16 ratio). Do you have the liquid or paste BAP?
One thing to remember with BAP is that it doesn't work on all daylilies, some will not increase or grow prolifs no matter how many times you BAP it.

It's the liquid form. I can just continue with my typical fertilizer regimen unless I see some changes for the worse. I should check out the ratio on the miracle grow I have been using.
