No, not really. You would be about right for potassium [K], but the plants would have no nitrates [NO3] which they need to grow. The beauty of KNO3 is you have two key ingredients in one chemical compound.I don’t think I can find KNO3. Can I substitute KCl or K2SO4 at the same teaspoon dose?
It is a <"trace element mix">, a mix of the elements plants only need in <"very small amounts">. Most people will use a very small amount of a molybdenum (Mo) or boron (B) containing compound and it just isn't worth buying even the smallest container of boric acid (H3BO3) etc., it would last them for all of eternity. I think <"CSM+B was just a commercial trace mix"> that was available at the time, any out of <"Yara Vita, Rexolin APN"> etc would do.I would like to know about Plantex CSM+B.
You need all fourteen of the essential elements for plant growth.Or is it added to these 3?
Plantex is a mixture of micronutrients, and is mostly composed of Iron.I have been looking to buy the dry goods.
I would like to know about Plantex CSM+B.
Is this a mixture of KNO3, KH2PO4 and K2SO4?
Or is it added to these 3?
Hi there!Here is a sample of how the reference 20 US gallon tank could be dosed:
Sunday 50% or more Water Change then dose [3/16 teaspoon KNO3] + [1/16 teaspoon KH2PO4] + [½ teaspoon MgSO4]
Monday 1/16 teaspoon CSM+B
Tuesday - [3/16 teaspoon KNO3] + [1/16 teaspoon KH2PO4] + [½ teaspoon MgSO4]
Wednesday - 1/16 teaspoon CSM+B
Thursday - [3/16 teaspoon KNO3] + [1/16 teaspoon KH2PO4] + [½ teaspoon MgSO4]
Saturday - Rest
There are various regimes which have worked for folkIs there a "general formulae" ?
Well that is very dependant on the water your using and the type of scape etcSo after say 10 years is there a few definitive dry salt plans that work?
This is the difference between EI and lean dosing. Tropica's standard recommendation would by most be defined as fairly lean, Seachem's Flourish borders into homeopathy.this is shown to raise nitrate by 1ppm but we are aiming for 20ppm on the EI dosing so is it right i need to be dosing 20x that!!?? 160ml per week?
