Regardless of what nutrients and minerals might actually be absorbed in Laterite, Profile, Eco, Flourite, etc., with a good CEC, the substrate will store up nutrients from dosing trace element mix into the water column. In a matter of months, the initial charge the substrate might have had will be insignificant by comparison.
