PPS-PRO dosing


Hi all,

Just today started the PPS-PRO system of ferts. I read that they are to be added just before the lights come on. Since my lights are set to come on at 12:00am and I leave for work at 7:00am is there any harm at dosing that early?

Thanks.

Jim

It's ideal to dose before the lights come on. That said I've never had a "problem" dosing when I remember lol.

I don't think it really matters, you just need to get the ferts in the tank. I try to dose before lights on because I thought I read that seachem iron breaks down faster in light.

As long as the ferts are in the tank the plants should use them whether you put them in the dark or light.

You should be fine. Just try and be consistent with the time you dose.

It is more important to remember to dose, rather than the time.
