[APD] PMDD solution looks green!
Today I finally made my own PMDD solution. I followed the recipe from www.thekrib.com. The first "problem" is that the chelated trace mix I used is not from CSM (B/regular), they are nowhere to be found here in Europe btw. The second thing is that it's about 2 years old but it's always kept in dry, dark, room temperature condition.
A quick comparison:
CSM Regular |CSM+B Mix |Tenso cocktail (all EDTA, only Bo and Mo has no chelate and some of FE is in DTPA)
Fe 7.00% 6.53% 3.84%
Mn 2.00% 1.87% 2.57%
Mg 1.50% 1.40% 0%
Zn 0.40% 0.37% 0.53%
Cu 0.10% 0.09% 0.53%
Mo 0.05% 0.05% 0.13%
B 0.00% 1.18% 0.52%
Co 0.00% 0.00% 0%
Ca 0.00% 0.00% 2.57%
So the trace mix I use has 5 times more Cu, and a lot more Ca, has allmost 2 times less Fe, no Mg and looks like this :
Shouldn't PMDD looks yellow/brownish just like Dupla24? The trace mix I use has somewhat different proportions of elements then the CSM one, is this a problem?
ps: how can I read messages instantly without having to wait for the daily digest?
