    The wait is over. This is what I have. Sorry for the poor sound. Cant remember if there was a fan, that might have blow directly over my microphone.



    I hope it is ok to share it like this. If anyone is not comfortable with the video, let me know and I will remove it.

    Nice!

    Watched about a minute so far, the sound isn't so bad, as long as you turn it up a bit. ^_^
    Will watch the whole show at home tonight.

    Thanks@AndriesJ for the vid, thanks @Dirk B for the speech!

    So much information on the talk.. learnt lots.. one to watch over and over again.

    Some of the information presented does go against the EI ferts understanding, so it is really important to digest this.

    @Luis Embalo how did your video come out? Your sound better than mine?!

    I will see if I can get the APSA logo on this video. But didn't want the guys that missed it, wait to long or the other people with failing memories forget to much of what has been said.

    Hi Luis,

    What I spoke about is actually not in conflict with EI. EI strives to keep the macros and the micros at a constant level and then adds nitrate and phosphate according to the requirements of the plants. This is pretty much what I spoke about. Sure EI says you should add quite a lot of nitrate and phosphate but EI also assumes that you are running CO2 strongly and are using strong lighting. If your lighting is not so strong, then you need less CO2 and less nitrate and phosphate, which is also what I explained. So what I was explaining is that there is the one extreme of EI with strong CO2 and lighting and there is also a reduced version but your macro and micro requirements stay the same regardless.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    Yes, however what I also took note was how one overdosing can have adverse effect on the absorption of other nutrients. That is something that I never even considered.

    My video I have not checked it yet, been extremely busy with work, but will check it. I am sure that the sound is good, I was close by.
