Took the plunge to dry ferts

So...after I solved my mysterious cardinal death problem, I of course had to change things again. I finally took the plunge and am not using EI to dose dry ferts. Dosing KNO3, KH2PO4, and K2SO4 every second day. For micros, I am continuing to use my Kent Freshwater until it runs out. Then I will start with the dry micro that I got with the other ferts. 1 lbs each of the three, and 100g of the micro, all for $17 CDN including tax. Great deal. Got it at a local Hydroponics store. Yahoo! Now to see if I can see a difference in my plant growth rates. Hopefully, I don't run into an algae problem.

Thanks, I think there is another source here in Burnaby which sells the same stuff in 5 lbs. bags for $9.99 CDN. However, I wasn't for such a large batch my first time, so I decided to go to the closer place which sells them in 1 lb batches.
