    Chlorine is a toxic man-made chemical, not a nutrient. Chloride is a non-toxic, naturally occurring micronutrient found in trace amounts in soil.

    You need to learn your math skills, the NPK % is by volume! Your explanation on this is totally wrong, 100 pound of 10-10-10 is NOT THE SAME as 200 pounds of 15-15-15! You have a fertilizer of 10-10-10, does't matter how many pounds you have, 10-10-10 is 10-10-10!

    Very helpful and practical video. Thanks very much. Already subcribe your channel. It will be great if you also make a video on how to treat those deficiencies in organic ways (e.g. with waste from kitchen).

    This is awesome. I have recently started keeping plants in containers and had no idea what was wrong with a few of them, now I have a good idea what the problems may be. Thanks for this concise but info packed video. I learned more here than I did in several months spent researching specific symptoms. I subscribed.
