    sorry if this has been asked before, but i couldnt find a similar post. I have a question regarding my Trace elements mix. I got a highly concentrated trace elements fluid with extra Fe. I deluted 50 ml of it in 450ml de-ionized water, but after 2 weeks i have stuff swimming around in it. Is that normal? I didnt mix it with Macro elements or anything else, and i wrapped the flask in alu foil to keep it dark. Is it the product of some reaction or just fungus? Are the plants still able to take up the nutritients? Thanks for help
    Regards Milan

    This is probably a fungus of some sort. Many people keep their microferts in an airtight bottle in the fridge to try and reduce this.
