Louis (and others who made similar comments),

I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with using other varieties
of Jobe's sticks.

When I first started using Jobes sticks I used a variety that I recall had
quite a bit more phosphorus than the fern and palm sticks. I switched to
the fern and palm sticks after I ran out of the first batch.  I got better
plant growth and no special problems using the high phosphorus sticks.
When I run out of the hard-to-find fern and palm variety I'm going to go
back to using the high phosphorus variety.
