Speedy Service -- and a ferts question

I placed an order from Greg Watson on Wednesday night, received confirmation of shipping at 10:30 Thursday morning, and the order was just delivered in today's mail. Everything was as I ordered it and I look forward to seeing the difference the fertilizers will make in the tank.

And, as a question -- if dosing EI, does it matter if you dose the tank in the morning, afternoon, or evening? Just wasn't sure when to dose to give the plants the best shot at using the fertilizers.

There has been a few threads on what time to dose ferts.
As it turns out, the plants don't care . How much you dose is key, not when.

Thanks, Kevin -- that's certainly convenient enough! :-)

It's both how much and how often you dose. EI says dose three times a week at roughly half the maximum you want the water to ever reach in ppm. (I think I'm right on that.)
