[APD] Is it possible to "charge" a high CEC substrate?

I am wondering whether it is possible to "charge" a substrate with a 
high CEC like Turface. My idea is to soak it in a strong solution of 
chelated micros (like TMG or PMDD) and perhaps even macros, rinse it, 
and then place it in the tank. My theory being that at least some of its 
exchange capacity will hold on to the stuff. Does this even sound 
plausible? Seems like it might be a way to give the substrate a "head 
start." Or, it might be a good way to flush a lot of fertilizer and 
waste a couple hours.
