After spending 5 weeks testing two trace mineral additives versus a control I wish I could say there was a definitive winner. We used 3 Aerogarden 3’s and the included lettuce seed pod kits to do the test. In this experimental grow we tested regular plant food versus plant food and Fulvex versus plant food and Earth Tonic. Because of how the Aerogarden seed pod kits work it was difficult to get them to all grow exactly the same. The reason it was difficult was because there are many seeds in each seed pod kit. By chance the control happened to have more sprout them the other Aerogardens.
The video explains the results. It is important to note that this test was essentially inconclusive. While there was no noticeable improvement in growth from the additives this does not mean that the additives are worthless. These were trace mineral additives and may have a bigger effect on overall nutritional quality which is a factor that was not measured. The Fulvex leaves that were tasted had a slightly more pronounced flavor then the other two but once again the results were not definitive.
