Need a Canadian Supplier for Dry Ferts

Really... I want to make up my own PMDD and don't feel like paying silly customs fees or having another shipment turned back at the border. (apparently, ordering Paintball markers+parts and Potassium Nitrate in the same week is suspicious...)

any fellow Canucks out there who can point me to a good supplier?

Hydroponics Shops

I would check your local hydroponics shop. They usually carry a wide range of dry fertz. I've also found them to be very knowledgeable about lighting. Save yourself some time and call them before driving down.

Good Luck

What about the trace mixes, are they comparable to CSM+B ?
