Potassium Sulphur Magnesium

Langbeinite is a naturally occurring mineral with a neutral pH. 

It has 3 essential nutrients, potassium which is important for CO2 uptake, magnesium, which is essential for the development of chlorophyll and sulphur which is key to enzymatic reactions. Its low chlorine content is unlikely to burn plants and is perfect for mixing into a solution or adding directly to the soil.

Langbeinite slowly dissolves in water, giving you a slow release of it's three main chemicals, and unlike other sources of magnesium won't affect the pH of your soil.

Be mindful that the magnesium component of Langbeinite is more soluble than the calcium or potassium
