EI daily

What is 'EI daily' dosing? Is it just dosing everyday with EI concentration instead of 3 times a week? This option is available on the dosing calculator on the GLA webpage.

EI Daily is when you dose Micros and Macros the same day every day of the week...
If you use doses from rotala butterfly it is pretty much regular EI cut in half plus a tiny bit more to compensate for the extra day of dosing.

This is what I thought it was. I have a dosing pump set to dose the same amount everyday for both macros and micros. So I guess this routine should be OK

If you are not using an all in one stock try having as much time as possible between the macro and micro dose to avoid precipitation as much as possible. Try to add the doses with a 12 hour difference, not sure how much it helps but should be better then adding them at the same time.

That is a good thought. I only have an hour in between the two doses. Is there any issues with dosing when the lights are out? I read somewhere its better to dose when the plants need the nutrients when the lights are on. So I have macros dosing at 10 am and micros at 11. And my lights come on at 11 and out at 8. Maybe I can move the micros to 5 or so...

Macros should not be an issue to dose during lights off. For mainly the irons sake the micros would be best to dose right before lights on.
