Thanks for the tip! It seems like the plus is coming back on the market, but I have read that it is not the same blend that it used to be, supposedly its missing the calcium and a few other things but not sure on that. I also have been using the new osmocote plus for my root tabs and they seem to be working well! I have distributed a few hundred to some friends as well and have heard good things back. How much did you pay for it at walmart? Cheapest I've seen it for was $7.50 but I think it was on sale, that was at Lowes about a month ago.
