Default Mineralize vs. Equilibrium

I was wondering if you could provide a bit more info on how Aquavitro Mineralize compares to Equilibrium such as the sources ( calcium sulfate, potassium sulfate, etc. ), percentages and such. Thanks.

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:

Guaranteed Analysis
Soluble Potassium (K20)
23.0%
Calcium (Ca)
8.06%
Magnesium (Mg)
2.41%
Soluble Iron (Fe)
0.11%
Soluble Manganese (Mn)
0.06%
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.
