2dKH is fine. w/o CO2 being injected just about perfect. Plants need GH and don't care regarding KH

Senior posters here on the site helped me through the aspects of KH on fish and plants just recently this is a link to the thread.
I'm injecting CO2 and have lowered my readings to 3dGH and by next week will have my KH at 2. I'm using an RO unit to do this so I'm jealous of your water quality.

2 dKH is fine, good for plants. What's your GH?
