Indeed, we need not fear the departure of Dupla for loss of access to
laterite - there are numerous other suppliers of the stuff, and as Adam
noted, more are appearing all the time. There are also enough good quality
liquid fertilizers and micronutrient supplements on the market or we can go
with PMDD. Several hydroponics retailers are getting wise and packaging up
the components for quick sale to aquarists.

But the "hardware junkies" among us will miss all of those expensive little
"toys" carrying the German name. Guess its time to change the song and "turn
Japanese". Sushi anyone???
