Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V1 #273

I've never used laterite. . . .  Come to think of it, I've never seen
laterite.  But I do recall an article by Owen Jeffries in _FAMA_ (maybe
someone else can help with the citation) about Karl Schoeler's plant
additives.  It's been a while, but I seem to remember that you could add
his "Substrate Gold" to an established tank if you baked it into "laterite
cookies" first.

Hope this helps, or better yet, sparks discussion.
