I use lots of greensand in all of my mixes. Great trace elements, and nice K levels. It will not burn your plants, and is an excellent buffer for other nutes. It is very nice for drainage and aeration, and makes a very nice home for my pot bound earthworms.

Greensand is an excellent soil conditioner as well as a slow release source of Fe, Mg, S, K, and P. The plants have never been greener.
