    I would suggest trying to analyze a liquid plant food called "pure blend pro gro" and another one called "cal-mag". I've known a few places that use this as a cheap fertilizer alternative as opposed to ordering chemicals from Fisher or something. Its used in a 1-6 ratio (pure blend/cal-mag) to grow chlorella. It is used at a rate of 0.5 ml/liter culture per day. It works surprisingly well bringing cultures up g's/l in a few weeks. I would be most interested to know more about the how this fertilizer effects the growth kinetics of algal strains.

    I've heard that human urine works well. It would probably need to be spiked with phosphorous but it's really high in Nitrogen. I guess it depends on how comfortable you are experimenting.

    how about coffee grounds, free, high in nitrogen
    as well as other trace minerals... low ph might be a problem?
