Is FloraPride any good?

I have been using FloraPride for my plants for quite some time now, but I'm starting to wonder if it really has all the goodies my plants need. Does anybody else have any experience with this? Should I switch over to the Flourish stuff?

I have used it and honestly, I thought it sucked. Go flourish.

I have used it before and i must say that it's effects are really not that visible. It is rather diluted. Currently i am using TMG complimented by fluorish and the growth is really amazing.

I guess I'll stop by my LFS tomorrow and grab some flourish. What do I need to do that? Do I just need the Excel stuff, or do I need to buy a whole cart full of bottles?

I was reading up on ferts and decided to order solid stuff from Greg Watson instead. Seachem seemed too expensive for the amount of doses you get out of a bottle. I got CSM+B, KNO3, KH2PO4, and K2SO4. Did I miss anything?

That list looks just like my first GW order. So much cheaper in the long run.
