    The reason I bought this book was because I was surfing the net on spirulina information that I couldn’t find. It did me well. The author was also very responsive when I asked questions. There are several ways growing spirulina can go wrong, so I suggest you go for this book if you want to avoid those.

    Reading your spirulina book and have to say, very impressive and thank you! I’ve been at a standstill, knowing there was a way to combine urine and other common materials to grow it but not having the time or money to deal with the regular failures common to experimenting alone. Your book is very helpful! <3

    Thanks to Ditsa Keren for the book. Now converting my culture from inorganic to the wonderful organic method.

  9. Prabu Kumar

    I received your E-guide and was surprised to see all the organic nutrient details and procedures Clearly since here in India no one is ready to tell someone which organic nutrient they actually use. I am cultivating and supplying quality spirulina and I am in the process of converting my production into organic by following your E-GUIDE I bought. I’d like to thank you for the time you’ve spent writing this book and replying my questions. Thank you!
