Thumbs up Re: How-To: Mineralized Soil Substrate, by Aaron Talbot

interesting writeup Aaron.

a few questions if I may;

what do you see as the principal benefit of this method when compared to using an already nutrient enriched substrate like Aquasoil, or Tropica's new line of fertilizer enriched substrates?

secondly, have you found that stirring, or agitating the substrate is particularly hazardous in comparison to disturbing a non enriched substrate? if so, what steps do you take to prevent substrate disturbance?

lastly... who still uses the term "muriate"? that is so old school. like, back in the old gravimetric world of chemistry, prior to the invention of the "mole".

anyway, thanks for taking the time to write this up. Ive seen it mentioned many times before, never actually understood what was required to complete the process.
