    I've been using K-like for a while, seems to work, but running low. I got it previously from FirstRay (who seems to know stuff about fertilizers) but he is no longer carrying it. Any other recommendations? Needs to be an RO-water formulation, and has to somehow dissolve in water (no slow release granules). Specialty formulations for Cattleya (or whatever) is not warranted either, as I grow pretty much only weird botanicals.

    I am using seaweed extract once in a while to supplement with further trace elements.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Roberts (www.orchidmix.com) also sells an MSU fertilizer. When I ordered from Kelly's Corner, they felt themselves entitled to bombard me with advertising mail. Roberts never does. Your choice.

    Interesting...I've ordered from Kelly's for a while and don't ever remember getting an email advertisement. Perhaps there is a box you can check for promotional emails or not?

    I've been using the MSU for RO for years and am very happy with the results. I also use some seaweed extract from time to time.
