    Hi,
    I’m planning on experimenting with urea, but in order to allow plants uptake urea
    a sufficient amount of Nickel is required.
    I have NiSO4.6H20, which I would like to add to my TMG-DIY (EDTA+DTPA chelates). The one thing I am concerned about is that an unwanted reaction between the nickel
    sulphate and the other micros may take place.

    Does anyone have any experience/suggestions with that?

    I would only add a milligram or two to the 5 liter TMG jug, you do not need much at all.

    It will be find to add.

    Thanks for the reply :)

    The minimum order was 100g, so I have enough for. hmmm, let me think.......

    (100g/0.001g)*5l = 500 000l

    500000l/0.020l/day= 25 000 000 days = 68306 years :D
