Woo hoo.. Found Cheap KNO3


On a whim I called my favorite Hydroponics store and asked if they had any Potassium Nitrate kicking around.. (They don't sell it off the shelf to often for many reasons)... Turns out they have a small stockpile in the back they have been trying to sell off so I picked up 2.5 kg for $12 Canadian...

I can also buy a 25 kg bucket for $38 Canadian but I figured that was too much to stockpile fo rmy uses....

Sounds like more trouble than it is worth. Especially since Greg ships to Canada.

That's a lot of KNO3 though.. should last you a while.. a long while.

Bingo! I don't need to offer a competing service.. I just want to have my own locally available supplies

wow- google turned this post up and man is it old!

But I am in Canada, and I am trying desperately to find myself some dry ferts for my aquarium. Does anyone have any ideas? I am in Southern ON.
