Sulfate of Potash = K2SO4 = Potassium Sulfate
Saltpeter = KNO3 = Potassium Nitrate
Phosphate of Potash(?)= KH2PO4 = Mono Potassium Phosphate ]

Try Curt (a.k.a. Off-ice) over on plant geek. He sells a pound of KNO3 for $1, a half pound of KH2PO4 for $1, and a dozen fertilizer tabs for $1. stock up and you still only pay $4 priority mail shipping.

bigfoot,

Not really correct information. The US distributor is going to quit carrying it. But it seems that another distributor will soon pick up the product.
