Elemental Sulfur

Does anyone have experience in using elemental sulfur? If so, do you have any tips on using it?

With my current tweaking, I won't be adding any salts containing sulfates, so I'm going to have to add it separately.

Does sulfur even dissolve in water? and if it could what would it bond with?
Maybe a better choice to at least have one compound that includes a sulfate?

Growing is not that difficult.

Well ..that's certainly a good tip: it does not dissolve in water. I had assumed it did based upon usage in soil, but it's used there simply to increase acidity, not for plant uptake.

I think I'll have to use Zinc Sulphate Heptahydrate in my micro mix. You get a lot of sulfate for very little Zn.

Thanks.
