    Savage Garden says to stay away from Miracid for Neps. What's the stuff people use for Neps? Orchid fertilizer? I dunno, I just feed mine...

    Do you have a source for that statement? I thought all those elements were essential to any sort of plant life.
    Of course, if the plant OD's on any one or two of them.....

    Yes, they live without those nutrients being present in the soil.
    That isn't the same as saying those 'nutrients' are 'toxic'.

    quogue?!?! ]
    What? Who? Why?
    Savage Garden tell you to stay far? But why?
    There are other voices of famous sellers that tells that Miracid is the best fertilizer discovered untill now.
    JustLikeAPill] :
    You didn't pay attention to the trace elements? So...than your final decision is again to buy the FIRST one and NOT the second one ?
    Ahaha..what a big confusion!
    Is there any who can answer to this?
    Bye!

    I've always heard those few elements (not all traces) are bad so I don't risk it.

    I know one way to find out..

    Miracid isn't really any better than what you're already using. Even if it was, since you will be (or should be) diluting it so much and possible benefits which miracid would provide over anything else (which for the record, it doesn't. Just a little acidic) would be negligable.
