None of my plants are especially demanding.
How does that plan sound to all of you? You can even respond "yay" or "nay" if you want to avoid repeating info or to save your time. It would still be valuable info!
I'm a 'Yay' except on the "excel, flourish + root tabs" idea. If your going to go C02 then step up and buy dry ferts and be done with the extra expense.
All you need is:
Trace mix (CSM+B or pfertz.com's "M")
Gh booster (for after water changes only)

The root tabs are fine as well just a little extra boost for the rooted plants.
