bros,

i'm from malaysia and it seems that i'm having difficulties getting my hands on chemicals.i've never seen a hydrophonic store around or chemicals being sold commercially.i've tried making a few calls but they seem reluctant to sell.

so i'm asking for help here bros whether if there's any other form of these chemicals where it's commercially available. for example,

KNO3 - in terms of stump remover, but i couldnt find any in the market here.so is there anything else besides stump remover??

KH2PO4 - fleet enema (alright..i havent look up on that yet)

K2SO4 - anything???

i had the thought of trying out the PMDD formula after browsing through the forums.i hope you can understand me as i really dont know how to put this into words.

thank you,
shawn

KNO3 aka potassium nitrate aka saltpeter. Check with a butcher that makes sausage. They might have a bunch of it on hand. Check with a good drugstore. Check a large garden/farm store. In some countries it's hard to obtain because in a stretch it can be used to make low grade explosives.

Not sure on the potassium sulfate. Check with a garden center. In fact check with commercial orchid growers. They just might have what you need.

thanks bro "rex grigg"....i've checked the nurseries and it's either that they dont really have it or they're reluctant to sell and it's difficult to find a domestic butcher that makes sausage here in malaysia.

anyway, i guess you're right.it's difficult to obtain due to the reason where it could be misused.
