    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

    How does this sound?

    Light --> CO2 --> NO3 --> K+ --> Ca/Mg --> PO4--> Traces (Fe)

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