Should be accomplished at night when no one is around!   ;D

If you're really set on liquid, you can use pretty much any of them, but I would choose the cheapest possible like General Hydroponics. I have tried tons of fertilizers for indoor plants of uh, various types, and there is very little difference in the end product.

The issue with liquid fertilizer is in fact you're just paying for water and the shipping thereof.

I agree. Even though you buy it from the store...

Ok maybe I shouldn't admit this but sometimes I put on so much slow release vigoro that I can barely see the soil anymore. There seems to be no limit to how much fertilizer they can take. I've never even seen young shoots burn from it. This said, I only apply when it is warm enough for them to grow.

Ive had a similar experience K-Rimes

Someone told me once that Cacti can take really high N because (at least in theory) animals sometimes get wrapped up in cacti and die and then the rotting corpse is essentially draining onto the plant, could be an old wives tale though

as k-rimes said, most liquid fertilizers are designed for tomatoes ; ), they'll drink GALLONS of water/day in a matter of months. Anything your plant doesn't drink, stays in the soil as a salt
