PPS- Classic Question

I just began using the PPS- Classic method and so far so,good. Question, I have read that the doses should be made one hour before the lights go. What happens if that can not be done and I dose while the lights are already on??

Should be fine.

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

You should be fine to dose after the lights turn on. The reason why they say dose 1 hour before lights come on is because it allows the plants to immediately start using the nutrients when the lights come on.

Use the Pro PPS system. Simply dose in the am when I get up around 7. The lights don't come on until noon. All is fine- lots of plant growth and very little algae problems.
