Can anyone tell me how much I should dose 10% Iron Chelate (DTPA) with CSM+B (EI Dosing)? I know CSMB has SOME Iron in it, but I don't know how to compensate for that amount or if it's necessary to do so. I heard 50% of CSMB dosage, but can't find that referenced anywhere...

According to the sticky i posted a link for it states between 20-40% of the amount of csm+b that you add. According to Tom Barr, a 1:4 ratio of your micros (25%). Ei dosing is all about an abundance of nutrients so that no nutrient limits plant growth so i tend to dose closer to the 40% mark, but at least you at least should have and idea of a starting point.

Fair enough, I'll start at about 35%ish to adjust for the CSM+B and see how that works. Thanks for the help, guys!
