Anybody have some extra they can sell? Also, does anybody have any tips on using this in an emersed set-up? What are your thoughts on worm castings?

I've been doing some research, but I am still pretty much a novice when it comes to this stuff, I've never used MTS before. Most of this substrate/chemistry stuff I research is way over my head anyway, I was never that into chem, always a math/physics guy myself :)

Anyway, during my "research," I read that mixing some azomite and leonardite will help the MTS with the humates or something, anybody have any experience or thoughts on that? I know it leeches a yellow color, (I think) into the water, but I don't care if it helps, especially in an emersed set-up.

Also, what's the deal with these Osmocote tabs everyone's selling. Are they an alternative to using something like MTS? Or would you sprinkle the stuff underneath the MTS?

I guess I should've posted these questions in a different section of the forum, not WTB, but I do WTB some MTS so... :help:

Final question, does anybody have experience with using K-L-N for rooting during emersed planting, and what are your thoughts?

If you are going with an emersed setup there really isnt any reason to use MTS, regular potting soil would be as good or better.
