Liquid ferts from dry ferts
Hi yah!
I know Rex is going to hate me for this, but here it goes!
How can I get make a recipe for 3/ 32 oz. bottles, almost a litre,
when I have 3/4 of a tsp. of KN03
3/16 of a tsp. of KH2P04 every other day
1/4 of a tsp. of K2S04
and then 1/4 of a tsp. of Trace alternating days
I tell ya, I'v read all these pages, looked elsewhere, including
Greg Watson's pages, listened to all the people that have
stated that they are still confused, read the same thing over
regarding the dry dosage p/day, " ahh ", no brainer; and I haven't
seen, - - - correct me if I am wrong, or even long winded, has anybody come up with such a recipe for a litre (32oz.) bottle!
I have tried to do the math, to no avail, looked at all the conversion
charts for grams, millilitres, tsps, tblsps., cups, quarts, and even
litres! I am not an idiot! And I know this should not be that much work!
But I am asking for a little help! I know the answer is probably quite
simple, and I am sure it's going to kick me in the head!
What I don't understand is if 3/4 of a tsp. is mixed with water, what
is the measurement of that amount of water used. If one knows this,
then one can measure the amount for a litre bottle. I was trying to
figure out if you add 1 tblsp. of Plantex for 500 mls., do you do the same for the other ferts. If one is 3/4's, and one is 3/16', and the other is 1/4,
then why would you take out a tblsp? That doesn't add up correctly given
the weekly dose.
O.K. I'll stop!
Can one of you guys help with this?
