The Tank is not on any ferts as I currently have no idea of them. ~x(

Plz Guide me through what should I buy, Where to buy and how and when to dose for my plants to thrive and not just to survive. x_x

I live in Howrah, Shibpur area. Please suggest some stores nearby if possible. Also I am pretty Low on budget right now so suggest something cheap and yet effective. :-ss

I saw this man selling squirt handwash kind of bottles at galiff claiming them to be fertilizers. I did not bought those I was not sure what they were. They costed 250 bucks though. Any Idea on them? :-??

Please bear with me I have no idea about macro or micronutrients or anything like that. x_x
