This is a good list. I like the thread. How about Chia? Apparently it accumulates Ca, P, Mg, Mn, Cu, Fe, Mo (Molybdenum), Zn, and Sr (Strontium) as well as niacin.

Obviously he would have been growing cannabis to satisfy innocent scientific curiosity.

This seems like a good list. Several plants look like important accumulators...I need to print out and start my wish list.

Awesome list Andrew.

Thanks for the post.

It would be great to build a list of plants with specific outscale nutrient needs that could assist in building guilds based in part on the providers.

Does anyone have a link to such a resource?

I believe there may be a list like that somewhere in gaia's garden.

Will need to see if it's in there.

Does anyone know of a dynamic accumulator that has a similar root system to Mullein? We are wanting something that will help break up and improve hard soil. Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thank you!
