Re: Nitrite (NO2) as a plant nutrient?

Actually, the latest information I have (Dec. 98) is that they have studies 
that prove one of those isn't involved at all. Can't remember which species 
was mentioned in this particular conversation, although I think it's the one 
that converts nitrites. The species they found sounded something like 
spirulina, Nitrospirogyra or something like that. 

Really have to do something about this memory of mine <G>.
