You will need to follow the instructions on the packaging, as well as know the feeding requirements of the specific plant in question.
Feeding rates can differ from brand to brand, depending on purity and proper storage.
As a general rule, you should start with half the recommended strength and work your way up, starting about 2 or 3 weeks before a plant starts to flower into maturity.
