Re: Mikrophos

I apologize for not fully understanding your problem....
I kinda glanced at your email and saw 'water softner'

the majority of my plants are on drip irrigation and this sort of thing is
often a problem.
Calcium bonding the the individual emitters clogs them.
I solved the problem by using a magnetic water conditioner.
the idea is that it changes the charge of the water and keeps the calcium in
Aside from aiding in the scaling problem, it should make the minerals more
easily taken in by the plants too.

of course the ferns may need to be more acid as a consequence.

one type is made by "The Magnetic Group Inc"
it is called the Magnetizer.
