  1. this video person is annoying to the point where i can’t watch this video

  2. btw those plants probably died because of lack of water not because of too much fertilizer. Potting soil drains way to quick for most plants that are in the sun. Usually you will get other side effects from too much fertilizer- colored leaves(yellow or red), dropped blossoms, or even stunted growth. Plus I do not think bone meal can burn plants that is why it is preferred over chemical fertilizers.
