EI Dosing Questions

Greetings All,
I have decided to take the plunge into EI dosing and I am curious where the best and cheapest place to buy fertilizer from. I bought some fertilizer off of Amazon, but it is expensive. Here is a picture of what I have:



The nutrients are as follows:





I just started using this stuff on Sunday and have already noticed an improvement in the way my plants look. my Crypts are displaying a bronze color:



I do not know how to mix the chemicals yet, but I am a good learner.

EI Dosing Questions

http://nilocg.com/diy-ei-liquid-fertilizer/

Will last a 40 gallon tank a year for $22. Micro and macro packets pre mixed and comes with two 500ml dosing bottles. Just put one micro packet in one and macro packet in other. Then fill each with 500ml RO water and dose each 3 times per week on alternating days. Super easy and super cheap. How I do it and results are great.

Same company what you have but cheaper because you are not having to pay for water which is mostly what you are paying for when buying the liquid stuff.

Will distilled water substitute for RO water?
