Where do you get your macros?


I was looking at the local landscape supply, Lowes, and nurseries for Potassium Nitrate and Mono Potassium Phosphate and no one carries any.

Suggestions?

Do you mean nilocg?

I ordered a pound of each through http://www.aquariumfertilizer.com/ that was in the dosing sticky just to get started, but finding a good reliable source would be great.

Thanks all.

Per EI dosing 1 pound of KNO3 should last almost 3 years in the 55 if my math is correct. But I haven't been doing it long enough to know for sure.

I just ordered from Bob's Tropical Plants. Seems decent on price - shipping is less than the website quotes and you're refunded the difference on shipment. Ships from S. Cal. Great communication too!
