isn't it just potassium chloride? Are you using it for your potassium dosing?

It's KCl, so can be used as a K source. I believe it's on all the well known fert calculators, the Fertilator has it for sure. I doubt any extra components in the ingredient list of NoSalt would large enough to really be worth considering.

Ok, KCl is listed on the fertilator......That's what I'm looking for, right? That'll do the trick?



I've had this stuff sitting around for a long time now--just want to get rid of it without actually tossing it in the trash.....

Thanks.

Sounds yummy

So Naja if you dose it for the K then what happens to the Cl?

What happens if it gets into Purigen? (JK!!!)

It just adds chloride to the water, similar to how we dose sulfates; CaSO4 versus CaCl2, in this case K2SO4 versus KCl. It comes back to the "which is worse?" question, sulfate or chloride?

As imeridian said--its really just a "which is worse" question....for now the S04 is worse, but once the Cl is gone--the S04 will start lookin' awful good again!
