EI ferts dosing

Hi I just got my EI ferts starter kit and I was wondering which time of the day is best to dose, I go to work at 7am and get in at 6pm I'm guessing before lights on but just wanted to check.

Thanks Tim

Technically probably best right before the lights come on. Are you going to notice a difference if you dose when you get home? Probably not.

It is more important to remember to dose and be consistent with it, then when you dose.

My lights come on at 11am and go of at 10pm so probably best to do it in the morning do you think?

Ya probably but I really dont think you will see any real world differences one way or the other.

I agree, I have done it both ways, before lights on and after lights out. No difference as long as you are consistent.
