I did a bunch of searching and can only find the quantities per sq. ft..which is 10-15 lbs. I would put maybe a cup of it on your plant or in its soil.

I would use just a sprinkle near the roots every few weeks.

Happy Gardening!

thanks for the info!! I'm glad to hear several suggestions. I used a measuring cup full. I just circled around the top of the soil.

Not sure, if the Cottonseed meal really worked this fast or not...
The plant was already blooming with new leaves...when I added that stuff it was about 2 days later and it seemed to go crazy with leaves. I didn't even water the stuff in. I have since watered, so I guess it's now watered in. That maybe more of a coincidence than anything. I also used it on my Garlic because I read in a soil mender book that Garlic really feeds off Cottonseed meal. Haven't seen the same reaction.
