Since Flourish will supplement all(?) necessary elements, there isn't
a need for RO Right.  Baking soda plus Flourish will do the job.<<<

I'm not a chemist, but based on the calcium and magnesium concentrations
(they're much less than the iron concentration) of Flourish I have
difficulty understandiing how they would add sufficient GH to RO water.  We
generally shoot for much higher concentrations of calcium and magnesium
than iron in planted aquaria.

I think I'll continue to add RO Right, calcium chloride, and epsom salts to
my RO water.
