QQQUUUUAADDD Can I just dump the ferts in dry? What about the CSM+B, does that need to be mixed with water?

Dosing EI

I'm going to start dosing EI in my 29.


2 X 24W T5HO 4 in over tank

I want to start dosing EI. I decided that I'm going to get the Green Fertilizers Package: Micros and Macros Mix from GLA. I'm going to be doing 50% water changes on Sunday. I should be dosing 1/4 tsp KNO3, 1/16 tsp KH2P04, and 1/16 tsp CSM + B all 3x a week correct? And if extra K is required, I should dose K2SO4 the same amount as KH2P04 correct? What I don't understand is which day to dose which fert. Can someone help me out on this?
