Just guessing, but the french is easier to decipher than, say, german...

Boric Acid  (H2BO3)

Sodium Bicarbonate  H2CO3

EDTA, a chelator

From the Sears & Conlin Tim Mullin's pages on The Krib, the micronutrient
ratios in PMDD are approximately
Fe 7 : Mn 2 : Mg 1.5 : B 1 : Zn .4 : Cu .1 : Mo .05
Adding Epsom Salts will kick the Mg up a little, too.  It looks like your
mix has Fe, B, K, and Mg, but I can't do the ratios without a periodic
table.  Looks like it lacks Mn, though.

Hope this helps,

BTW, I, too, would like to see a summary of the 'aerial roots' replies.  The
first three inches of my Hygro. corymbosa look like a rats' nest...
