Where do you guys get your dry ferts?

I bought a pack from seachems liquid ferts and two weeks later I'm out of potassium... :/

So I'd like to get some dry ferts so that will last a bit longer, lol.

Where do you get them?

If you hit up the For Sale section, you'll find a few members who sell ferts.

Green Leaf is also a popular seller.

Something that may help you make the decision about where to purchase would be to use the search function at the top of the forum. Check the most recent threads for details about where people are buying to see what's current.

niloc is a member who sells premixed EI ferts and sends the dosing bottles with them, that's what I use and I have excellent results.

+1 for nilocg. Like being able to buy just what I need. I don't use much NO3 but do use more GH booster & potassium. So like being able to customize to fit my needs. Plus I can get Osmocote tabs from him too.

Osmocote+ capsules .. I used them around my Swords & other heavy root feeders. Seems to help them more than just dosing water column with dry ferts.
