Has anybody used the macro micro nutrient mix? ^^^^^^^^^
I'm new so would anybody recommend this for a beginner or should I start with the individual nutrients and adding them separately? Also, of I do use this, is there anything else I might need to add that isn't already in this mixture?
Thanks everybody!!

I believe they come separate and that is a "kit" of them. But it doesn't have everything you need. Like above...see nilocg on here. Look in the for sale section till you see his name on a thread.
Under "package pricing" you likely would want either the first or third one.

Honestly regardless of who you purchase your dry ferts from, dont go with the macro/micro mix, it doesnt contain any phosphate and really isnt any cheaper than going with separate dry ferts which will work much better in the long run.

Thanks you guys. The cheaper the better right now that's for sure.. I'm not quite ready to order anything yet I'm. Just doing my research. How hard is it to figure your amounts needed? Is there a specific way of figuring everything.?

Go to Tom Barr's website or Google EI dosing. They will have a breakdown into teaspoons if you do not wish to use a gram scale. It is all close but not quite correct as all tanks vary to some degree. You will find yourself making minor adjustments from time to time.
