been looking around at alot of diff ferts. I know most people have been suggesting getting individual components and dosing that way. I am just not sure if I am at the stage to get that crazy into the ferts. As I do this and understand the relationships between nutrients I will most definately move that way, but if possible I would like to get my feet wet first.

Anyway I was looking at diff plant spikes. miricle-gro, jobes, etc, and came across this one, which seems to have all the nutrients in it that I have heard most people talking about, and thought I would try and get a few opinions on it.

There is a lot of stuff in there that sounds like junk science to me---sea minerals, kelp extracts, Yucca extracts. Beyond mineral nutrients, plants don't need any organics, nor are they helped by any, except possibly chelating agents that might make iron more available.
