A handful of Osmocote and a double handful of worm castings every now and then seem to keep mine happy. You'll know you hit the sweet spot when the leaves get that blue-green color and the white veins. 

They like steady moisture too. I have mine on a drip/mist system with a timer set to run for ten minutes every four hours. Does wonders for getting them through the hot summer months.

Would urine be a good fertilizer for Sally it's high in nitrogen

Botta use bat guano and shrimp meal and Langbeinite npk ratio on bat guano is 9-3-1 shrimp meal is 6-6-0 and langbeinite is 0-0-22  so in total 15-9-22 should I lower the potassium by using a little less the the directed amount or does that sound good it's down to earth fertilizer some of the trace elements are calcium and is at 30% is this to high I never have used fertilizer before I was hoping if I stuck with organic I wouldn't burn and that would be a perfect ratio figured I don't need alot of phosphorus cuz I'm not looking to for flowers and doubt it will flower so I figured  lots of potassium would help the Sally with shock and just over all great cell growth let me know what you guys and lady's think

Organic ferts have something to them but i dont think sallies are that demanding and do just fine on your average plant fert product.

They are also relatively tolerant to underfertilization i would say from fun experiments like growing a cutting from a wine bottle with water that i didnt refresh for months - so yeah a fortunate microbial situation apparently in that water  ;D

Yes plants need different levels of different nutrients in different stages of their growth/life, I honestly don't know of any data that suggests which nutrients can "boost" SD but that would be good to know. Don't go nuts with exotic nutrients imo unless you really know what you're doing, adverse things might happen.
