Hey guys so just looking for opinions. After extensive research I found a few, 2, recipes for DIY clay based root tabs. The other I found were just store bought slow release with a gel cap which forces you to find a Store bought slow release that meets all of your needs. Well after looking I did not find any that have the micros and macro in the appropriate level. Looking at what most people use I cherry picked the best of each Seachem, Rootmedic, Osmocyte, and Dynamite. I went to the drawing board and came up with the formula below, rolled into 200, 4g Tabs. According to my calculation we should get a product that is 9-9-12 which contains all the micros that Seachem tabs do, for reference Dynamite is 14-14-14 while root medic caps are 14-10-11. All comments are welcome. tests to come when all products come in. If anyone wants to see the spreads I used to calculate please let me know.
