All im doing now is mixing epson salt an miracal grow and spaying it on with a hose. Is this ok? I use round up in a backpack sprayer also.

    True but enforcement is next to none in NW Florida. We do have a big loop hole here, If owner provides chemicals like the Roundup & says go spray this/that, Then no lic is needed.
