Thanks for the post!
Mineralize is different because it provides the minerals in a gluconate form, which means that the plants are able to utilize them much more easily, without expending any energy. It is also in a liquid form, which makes it much easier to dose. Mineralize is comprised of only calcium and magnesium, while Equilibrium is comprised of the following:
Soluble Potassium (K20)
Soluble Iron (Fe)
Soluble Manganese (Mn)
Derived from: potassium sulfate, calcium sulfate, magnesium sulfate, ferric sulfate, manganese sulfate.
Elemental potassium is present at a concentration of 195,000 ppm (19.5%). Archaic fertilizer laws force us to list potassium in terms of equivalence to a material that is not present (K2O) rather than the more scientificaly sound method of simple e lemental equivalence.
