You need to check the ppm of the discharge of the drain water before giving it fertilizer. If you just guess and add fertilizer you may harm the plant with a single application of fertilizer. Since you have so many pretty plants you may want to consider buying an EC meter to test the drain water. Another term EC is TDS meter for getting readings of the soil nutrients.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Thank you for your reply. Never heard of EC meters before so I will google it and start learning on this but if you know a good place to start, please let me know. I fail to understand the concept of "You need to check the ppm of the discharge of the drain water before giving it fertilizer." you mentioned."
I may be asking too much but do you use a particular meter that you like?
This is my wife's garden but I like plants also. thanks
