No, not really. You would be about right for potassium [K], but the plants would have no nitrates [NO3] which they need to grow. The beauty of KNO3 is you have two key ingredients in one chemical compound.I don’t think I can find KNO3. Can I substitute KCl or K2SO4 at the same teaspoon dose?
It is a <"trace element mix">, a mix of the elements plants only need in <"very small amounts">. Most people will use a very small amount of a molybdenum (Mo) or boron (B) containing compound and it just isn't worth buying even the smallest container of boric acid (H3BO3) etc., it would last them for all of eternity. I think <"CSM+B was just a commercial trace mix"> that was available at the time, any out of <"Yara Vita, Rexolin APN"> etc would do.I would like to know about Plantex CSM+B.
You need all fourteen of the essential elements for plant growth.Or is it added to these 3?
Plantex is a mixture of micronutrients, and is mostly composed of Iron.I have been looking to buy the dry goods.
I would like to know about Plantex CSM+B.
Is this a mixture of KNO3, KH2PO4 and K2SO4?
Or is it added to these 3?
Hi there!Here is a sample of how the reference 20 US gallon tank could be dosed:
Sunday 50% or more Water Change then dose [3/16 teaspoon KNO3] + [1/16 teaspoon KH2PO4] + [½ teaspoon MgSO4]
Monday 1/16 teaspoon CSM+B
Tuesday - [3/16 teaspoon KNO3] + [1/16 teaspoon KH2PO4] + [½ teaspoon MgSO4]
Wednesday - 1/16 teaspoon CSM+B
Thursday - [3/16 teaspoon KNO3] + [1/16 teaspoon KH2PO4] + [½ teaspoon MgSO4]
Saturday - Rest
