Automated ferts dosing

Is there a way to automate dosing dry ferts? I can't remember to do them 3 times a week.

I'm not entirely sure, but I believe root tabs with osmocote plus or a certain miracle gro line supplies macros as well as micros. And you only have to replace them every 4-6 months. Hopefully someone corrects me if I'm wrong.

You could always mix them with water to get liquid ferts, and then build dosing pumps for cheap. Here is what I did.
