Ran out of maxsea so ordered some online.... (yes, ebay)
When it arrived I opened it and went omg, this looks nothing like the Maxsea I had.
First thought was I got a bogus ebay product... now what?
Called Maxsea, described my concern...
"You cannot go by appearance with our product. As an example, we have three different sources for Bone Meal. What the final product looks like will vary from batch to batch based on ingredient source."
I was still not warm and fuzzy, so I said well let me describe what "mine" looks like...
Its grayish in color and appears to have pellets like osmocote in it...
"You have 16:16:16 don't you?"
"you're good to go..."
still not going to trust it till I try some on less valuable Heliamphora
Whenever I've bought it, it has looked as you describe. I shall get a photo, post haste!
come to think of it same here. let me go check when I got a moment at home.....
that is good to hear.... cuz it sure is diff than my last (and only other) bottle....
to be fair, I probably bought it ummm 4-5 yr ago though
Lots of osmocote-like pellets in the mix, visible as spheres with brown sugar coating! (Normally the pellets don't have this much other material glued to them, but this stuff is hygroscopic and mine is the end quarter of the jar and has absorbed some moisture)

mine looks darker. I think it got some moisture in the bottle. problem with living here in Maui....
that is much closer to what I have now than what I had....
my new stuff:
my original bottle was much more reminiscent of miracle grow miracid
I checked for water solubility and it seems very good.

looks like a spice rub or corned beef spices.....
Yes Butch, a brand new jar of the stuff looks like what you show in the photo. Mine, as I say, has been open for three months and is gets sticky over time.
warmer and fuzzier now :-)
