So I grow in perlite/coco and have a new 100% perlite grow coming up. Bottled pk seems expensive so if added on bottled recommendations I'd be getting a new bottle every grow.
Are there any cheaper non bottled pk alternatives? Something I could get from bunnos which I could still mix up in my feeding tub with the other nutes?
Cheers, MLG

Coconut water is high in k normally give the outdoor girls a few hits of that from mid flowering, 100Ml to 4L don’t know the science just one of me mates been doing it for 10 years always gets good results.

In Coco perlite think ya just need to suck it up and by a bottle, sure $20-$50 isn’t going to break the bank too badly? So many macro’s in those nutes you might miss by substituting, soil wouldn’t matter so much.

Pk normally lasts me 2 runs in a 2.4 x 1.2, only use it a few weeks per run.

What size bottle are you talking mlg? A bottle each grow sounds a lot, unless it's a very small one.
Bunnings have a 2litre bottle for $14, or a kilo bag of soluble powder for $12

Yeah Pat, I'm sounding like a bit of a tight ass... you're right! I've just got a 500ml of nutrifields pk heavy. It's 15ml per 10L and I've got a 100L tub which I'm going recirc now. I should just get another. But looking for bunnos alternatives too. MLG

The old powdered nutrients ABC&D Part D was monopotassium phosphate. Can still get it from a few shops. I think thats potash, right?

Hey Cooper. Yeah I've read that the powders are economical. I think one of the other members suggested it in another post. Can buy from ebay
