        For the past 3 years or so we have used plates made with Peters
15-5-15.  I'm not sure if 20-20-20 would make any significant difference.
 We use them for germination as well as selecting transgenic plants on
Kan.  We make up a 100X stock of 132g Peters/liter, then use 10ml/liter
for plates.  You will need to pH it to 5.7 then, the pH is quite low when
you mix it up.  Be careful though, it has very little buffering capacity, so
it doesn't take much base to bring it up.

Hope it helps,
