EI dosing fertilizer recommendations

Researching this method of fertilization.

With my current equipment - Small pump ,flow regulator (drip) , timers ect. I can DYI a system to pump liquid fertilizers into my system. Keeping it simple what liquid fertilizers can I mix together to obtain all the elements needed for EI dosing?

After that, what will I need to add to complete the EI method?


If I can get this to work well for me I will continue evolving with purchases of additional specialized equipment and more complex mixing with individual fertilizers. I just want to keep it simple at 1st.

Any input is appreciated.

You can mix macro nutrients together then trace and iron are mixed as a separate solution. All in all you need 2 separate dosing systems or pumps.

Thanks. I am working on ordering both in liquid form and premixed off a fellow on this forum. Think the premix idea will get me started with EI, then at a later date possibly start purchasing dry ferts and mixing myself.
