On day 1,3+5 I dose 9 gram Potassium Nitrate KNO3 + 5 gram Monopotasium Phosphate KH2PO4

On day 2, 4 + 6 I dose TNC trace –My trace includes, Fe, Mn, Zn, B, Cu and Mo

I am in hard water area so do not dose Magnesium Sulphate

I am new to EI and started 4 weeks ago.

I used to use 50 / 50 RO and tap water until i started EI so some of my problems may be from then.

Additionally when i dose trace elements my water turns white cloudy for 24 hours. Someone said this is due to me having hard water and calcium reaction but i don’t know if I should go back to mixing RO again?
