Okay perfect I see what you mean now, thank you for explaining it more.Hi Jon! Let's see if this explanation helps. How much you use depends on the size of the container and how much water it takes to reach runoff in the soil you are using. You should have a good idea how much water it takes to reach this point, so divide that amount by 4.
Start off with 1 cup of water, a very small amount, and spread it evenly around the top surface, just to break the surface tension and start the suction as the water starts to fall downward.
Then take 1/4 of the total, and slowly water in the inner circle around the trunk of the plant with that amount.
Take the next 1/4 and water slowly around the entire outer edge, taking care not to go so fast that much of it falls through any cracks in the side that lead straight to the bottom.
Now the fun begins. Take the 3rd quarter and water again in the center slowly. You are actually trying to drive micro soil out of the center clump of roots, out toward the outer edge, so as to leave more room in that center core for roots. This 3rd application of water should have caused a small ridge of soil to form just outside of the old rootball as that soil is driven that direction.
Last step, the last 1/4 of your water, goes around the outside edge again. This will drive rich microsoil from this region back toward the center root mass, and it will leave the outside edge as the wettest place in the container, enticing roots to grow out that direction.
Do you think I should add calmag or anything to the water. I gave her the recharge and sprayed her with neem oil and the yellowing on the upper fan leaf seemed to slow down almost to a halt but still seem to spread a little. The lower (blade leaves I believe) are still turning more yellow and going to die off soon
I can attach pictures if you would like
thank you agin for the help,
