I am sure this has been discussed ad nausium.... so let's try it again.

If you HAD to choose between Tropica Mastergrow and Seachem Flourish which would you choose?

Why not add all the other traces to the mix to get a full spectrum?

CSM+B, ADA, Pfertz Micros, wonder gro, etc.
Over the years I have only used either Flourish or Mastergrow. I think I get better growth using TMG. So I was just wondering what others thought of the two. Maybe someone could makeup a poll with the others?

Thats an excellent chart Tom! Forgive my ignorance, what is DTPA, EDTA and HEDTA?
And gluconate, those are the common chelators for iron(Fe).

They tend to be pH/, rather, KH specific.
So with harder tap, might wanna use DTPA, very soft: gluconate/ETDA.
I use a mix of both so there is both long and short term Fe in various states around the plants.
