Adjusting PPS Pro....?

Hey so quick question. If I wanted to dose 10mL per 10 gallons, instead of the 1mL. Would I take the measurements for a given amount e.i. 1000mL bottle and divide the grams of each fertilizer by 10?

You can use this site, Yet Another Nutrient Calculator, to calculate. You can calculate for dose size, solution container size, and tank size.

Correct. Ten times less stuff added to water, requires ten times more water needed to reach same concentration.

Feel free to edit.

I tried the calculator; however the results only tell me how much I'm adding in each dose, not how much I need to add to the stock solution to achieve the dose.

Just wanted to be sure.


So for a 1000mL bottle would mix
macros:
K2SO4 - 5.8g
KNO3- 6.5g
KH2PO4 - .5g
MgSO4 - 4g

Trace:
csm +b- 8g

And dose 20mL to achieve all targets on the PPS dosing regimen
