Two months ago, Felix Laughlin, President of the National Bonsai Foundation, asked advice on how to fill a tea bag with fertilizer quickly. The process seems to take a while, but I found that I can fill about 9 bags per minute with the following approach.

The most important thing is creating all hand – tea bags (flap up), fertilizers and scoop. From there not much to it.
