Why not add all the other traces to the mix to get a full spectrum?

CSM+B, ADA, Pfertz Micros, wonder gro, etc.

Over the years I have only used either Flourish or Mastergrow. I think I get better growth using TMG. So I was just wondering what others thought of the two. Maybe someone could makeup a poll with the others?

Why not look at why you get the better color and growth?

Compare those three.
CMS is very cheap.
If you add a little DTPA to CMS, then it's pretty close to TMG.

And gluconate, those are the common chelators for iron(Fe).

They tend to be pH/, rather, KH specific.
So with harder tap, might wanna use DTPA, very soft: gluconate/ETDA.
I use a mix of both so there is both long and short term Fe in various states around the plants.
