|angelsword||Well, I rolled the clay mixture into little balls and they're drying on waxed paper. In case anyone is wondering, nails are fine. It does, in fact, wash right off.|

By the way is it bad that I know what OPI is?

|angelsword||How badly does the clay stain hands and nails? My other obsession is my nails. Honestly, I'd rather spend the money on root tabs than end up with stained nails. (I mean OPI has two new collections out!) I tried rolling out the clay, but that was not working at all. I ended up adding some water and mixing everything up while wearing gloves. It'd be so much easier if I could just get in there with my hands.|

Smaller quantities are available on the Flea Bay. I started out that way but decided that I would spend more after
the shipping was added to each individual item, and for much smaller portions, than buying from that link.
But if you look on this link you can get 1lb quantities of pre-mixed in the proportions mentioned above it for
$10 per lb. Personally I think the pre-mix is heavy on KH2PO4 as I use a much smaller percent than what is listed on there.

I haven't any CASO4 nor MgsO4. What would be the issue if I don't include these? Is there something locally that I can add in their place?
How about plaster of paris and epsom salt? OR is wiki wrong once again...

|ua hua||I made some of these last weekend and ended up with a ton of them. I'm also doing a little experimenting and in about half of them I put Kelp meal in instead of the dry ferts to see how that works. I asked about using kelp meal quite awhile back and never got a definitive answer and upon searching the web I didn't find much about anyone trying this except for a thread from 2007 on APC and never really found out any results. So I guess my tank will be the guinea pig. I put them in last week and haven't seen any negative effects yet.|

|All your base||
Has anyone tried DIY clay root tabs with osmocote instead of powdered ferts?
I can find threads like this, where people do clay balls with powdered ferts. And I can find threads where people have done gelcaps with osmocote. But I don't see much on using osmocote in clay balls. I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't work but I'd love to hear from someone who has actually done it.

Looks like something right up my alley. I went to a big box pet store last night and spend 40 bucks on 30 root tabs. Much too rich for my blood.
Where is the best place to buy the dry ferts in bulk like that?
