Dry Fertlizers

Unread postby npatel » Fri Aug 30, 2013 2:36 pm

Hi Friends,

Has anybody used dry fertilizers? I just googled on DIY Plant Nutrients and fond these three chemicals. Want some gyan on these. I need information on where to buy these materials and how much dosage is required for plants. Also is this really cheap compared to Aquatic Plant Nutrients available in the market? I am looking for affordable and cheap nutrient product for my aquatic plants.

KNO3 (potassium nitrate),
K2SO4 (potassium sulfate), and
KH2PO4 (mono potassium phosphate)

Thanks!

Dry fertilizers are always cheap and under budget in a common aquarist. I am using these from years. Read here for more information http://aquapetz.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=89

Visit any shop who sales chemicals for school/college laboratories.

these are what most of us here use as a cheap alternative to commercial fertilizers.
