It probably has calcium in it. Besides that, your guess is as good as mine.

I was hoping it was some sort of potassium. I wish I labelled this.

If you have a nitrate test kit, just put a tiny bit in a little water, and test it for nitrates. If it might have calcium in it, test it with a GH test kit.

If it's Gh booster, it'll have Ca, Mg, and K in it.

I have the API kit and a GH kit as well. What readings should I expect when testing for nitrates and GH?

Thanks.

You won't know what readings to expect because you are essentially doing a blind trial. Test plain water, and then test water that has this powder mixed into it, and see what you get, and go from there.
