[APD] Re: Re: Flourish Excel and algae
>>"But, for reasons Uncle Sam won't let us discuss, all I can say is that
can't feed on Excel and I will leave it as an exercise to the reader to
why this is the case (big picture folks, no chemistry involved ;-)."
Perhaps I've had too much chemistry and biology to think big picture,
can't figure out what he's getting at. Can anyone explain why Excel would
provide carbon to plants but not algae?<<
Because Excel is not carbon, no carbonic acid...its chemical compounds
called intermediates. And as I understand it from Dr. Morin, plants use
these in the same way as they do carbon, but algae does not. I am sure Greg
will expand on this further.
