Hi -

I use the PPS kit from GreenLeaf which comes with:

Potassium Nitrate (KNO3)
Mono Potassium Phosphate (KH2PO4)
Potassium Sulfate (K2SO4)
Magnesium Sulfate (MgSO4)
Plantex CSM + B

I use the suggested amount yet don't test for any of this using the API test kit.

What kind of tests are people doing?

Currently using: API + KH/GH

pH, kH, gH, nitrates, phosphates, ammonia and nitrite are generally good test kits to have.

The last 2 are mainly for when problems arise.

Even then, after you are more familiar with your own setup, testing can become less necessary. This is particularly true for a regimen like EI (but perhaps not so much so for PPS-Pro).
