    Hi,
    The active ingredient in Brighty K is simply the ionic form of Potassium (K+) which can be had by a variety of dry powder sources, not the least of which is Potassium Nitrate (KNO3) used extensively in PMDD and EI dosing. There is no magic involved. The plant doesn't care one way or the other, so there will be no difference in growth/health performance.

    If you search around you'll find a few threads which discuss Brighty K such as this one => ADA Brighty K

    The following thread discusses the function of Potassium.
    Lack of Potassium

    Cheers,
