What is the general order of growth limiters on plants? I swear I have seen this before here, but can't seem to find it. Per my (often faulty) memory:

Light - then CO2 - then NO3 - then micros :confused:

Where does Ca, Mg, Fe, PO4 and K+ fit in there?

TIA

I'd swap the Mg for PO4, otherwise fairly good.
