Also some people say that re-crystallizing is an inferior way of making rocket candy, or that fertilizer is substandard to other forms of KNO3.
Oct 29, However I've read elsewhere that some stump removers are made with sodium hydroxide, instead of potasium nitrate. Is there a simple way to test the stump remover to see if it is Kno3 prior to making the rcandy, as I really don't want to be cooking up anything without being certian whats in it.
Thanks. As a stump remover, potassium nitrate will accelerate the rotting of stumps. Simply drill holes into the stump, add some water and potassium nitrate, and the stump will rot more rapidly over time without affecting living vegetation around the stump. HAZARDOUS CHEMICAL: This item may not be compatible with other hazardous materials. Feb 19, Potassium nitrate is the main ingredient of stump removal liquids, but it also has calcium stearate.
So your better off getting regular fertilizers with KNO3 instead of the stump removal because it reacts with certain fungi which accelerates treedelimbing.barted Reading Time: 6 mins.
This method is especially effective for potassium nitrate (KNO3) since its solubility in g of water is g at degrees C, and only g at 0 degrees C.
