[APD] Re: Nutrients

Absolutely nothing wrong with the PMDD recipe shown there. I've used it since it first came out. By "old" I didn't mean to imply something "new." I meant "old" as in "venerable, tried, and true." As in "an old friend," which needn't imply a "new friend." (I love how language works.) The old, tried and true PMDD recipe has chelated Fe, trace elements, lots of magnesium sulfate, potassium sulfate, and (optionally) potassium nitrate. After reading here and elsewhere, I've learned that many people are adding micro nutrients independently of the macros. My specific question concerned my local hard water. After checking the water testing reports for my area, I don't think Mg and Ca will be in short supply with regular water changes.

"That's why I was asking about the magnesium.  In the old
PMDD recipe, there was a whopping dose of epsom salts."

There is a new one? What was wrong with the old one shown here:
