RE: Aquatic Plants Digest V5 #218


I bought my PMDD through http://www.hydroponics.com/info/aquatics/pmdd.htm
for $35, which included the cost for UPS shipping. I bet my supplies will
last for a year or so. I just can't afford the plant fert at the LFS. They
even send the PMDD recipe for you to follow. If you can use a teaspoon for
measuring, you can mix your own ferts. Don't be intimidated by it. After you
start using it, you can start learning what all those chemical notations
mean, and begin to understand why the PMDD does what it does.

Subject: Feeding plants

Hi Everyone,

	I'm trying to figure out what I need to "fed" my plants in my new
planted tank to make sure they are healthy. I have plenty of fish so my
nitrates are plenty. I've been adding Kent Marines Fresh Water Plant
Supplement (Iron + trace minerals). Is this enough? 

	Since Kent Marine supplement is pricey I was thinking about going to
PMDD. Does anyone have a down to earth formula? All this NO3+3Ndf=M345j is
making me crazy.
