DAI plant tablets - the formula
I know Mike for a long time, and he is a nice guy. But I wish that he
would be more honest about his plant tablets. His ad says they contain
iron and magnesium for root growth. I once asked him about the
ingredients and he said that they also contained Mn. I assumed that was all.
Then, Diana Walstad's article in TAG mentions that DAI tablets
contain N,P,K, Fe and Mg (but no Mn).
So, when I saw Mike in March I asked him. He was pretty coy and said
something about a family secret. So, I had the tablets tested!
The elemental concentrations (as percent of total tablet) are as follows:
(So much for the family secret!)
BTW, the tablets weigh 0.75 gms The sample I submitted for analysis was
1 tablet dissolve in 1
liter of distilled water (purchased at grocery store). So, one perhaps
important assumption is the I did in fact have distilled water :-)
