Why pay the price?

There are cheaper alternatives out there.

GH booster? by who? Rex- Is that in the new line up you're putting out?
Does GH booster have Calcium? I know a lot of r/o right sort of things DON"T (probbaly because it's hard to dissolve I'm guessing?) And that's why I recently switched to equilibrium.

600 grams or 1.323 pounds is on sale at the Dr's for $7.59.
http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...1&N=2004&Nty=1

This works out to:
GH Booster - $5.00 per pound
Equilibrium - $5.74 per pound = $7.59/1.323 pounds

Grumpy's GH Booster: $3.50 per pound
GH Booster - $5.00 per pound
Equilibrium - $5.74 per pound = $7.59/1.323 pound

It's a bit different.

5 grams will add the following to 10 gallons of water

25 ppm K
39 ppm calcium
12 ppm magentas
0.15 ppm Fe
0.07 ppm Mn

Adds just over 2 GH.
