Default Re: DIY carbon source, not CO2

It's curious that Advance uses 3 different carbon chain chemicals

γ-Amino Butyric Acid 0.15%
Glutamic Acid 0.04%
Mannitol 0.14%

They may want to cover as many different ways plants absorb these carbon molecules I guess. Something to think about.

Hmm, I'll give Mannitol a try too. I can get 1lbs for $18. I'll mix a 1:1 with my K-gluconate..
