Dry Ferts

Can someone tell me how many grams a person would need for each dry fert (macro& micro) for (3) 2 liter bottles? Also how much excel/glut would need to be added in the 2 liters to prevent molding?

Ya if you tell me what you are putting in each of the 3 bottles I can help you a little more. Also what size is your tank and how long would you like this solution to last?

I am sending a forum member some dry ferts, enough for them to store it in 2 liter bottles, they will be mixing it with r/ or distilled water. I just need the math part done so I can weigh it and send the right amount of Csm+b for one 2 liter....nitrates for second 2 liter, and potass &phosphates in 3rd 2 liter bottle..also how much glut/excel will they need to put in each bottle to prevent molding while storing?

How concentrated do you want to make it?
