For Manganese and other micro elements I would suggest that you mix some DE (Diatomacious Earth) in with your soil/substrate. Here are the % of elements in DE:
Silicon Dioxide: 94.2%
Titanium Dioxide: 0.2%
Aluminium Oxide: 2.5%
Iron Oxide: 0.9%
Manganese Oxide: 0.1%
Magnesium Oxide: 0.3%
Calcium Oxide: 0.5%
Sodium Oxide: 0.2%
Potassium Oxide: 0.4%
Sulphur Oxide: 0.4%
Phosphorus Oxide: 0.3%
It's a natural product, and also helps keep unwanted critters at bay that lay eggs in the soil.

I normally just sprinkle a layer on top of the substrate, but I feel I have enough going on in my soil so it's more of a preventative for me. However I have seen, or read of should I say, of organic peeps using this as a mix in their soil. Sorry I can't give you a ratio pal, I would just be making up numbers if I did, lol. I am positive it was someone on RIU who I saw also used it and mixed it in with their substrate....fucked if I can remember, my head is swimming with weed and whiskey at the min. Peace, D

Well the fact of the matter is that you say it is safe to add as a layer on top, and thats what Ill do, thanx mate!
