What fertilizing regimen are you using? Adding 2 table spoons to 250 mL water and then dosing that is quite rough.

You can mix potassium sulfate with potassium nitrate.

So it seems like you are using EI?

You can dose the potassium sulfate; I believe Tom Barr uses it in his GH booster (which is only dosed once a week anyway).
