DIY EI Liquid Fertilizer
Want to dose ferts but the cost of liquid ferts is too expensive???
Dont want to go through the hassle of mixing dry ferts yourself???
Then this is for YOU!!!!!!
What you get- 2x 500ml dosing bottles(1x Micros, 1x Macros)
3 sets of fertilizers packets( so you are essentially getting enough to make 1500ml of both micros and macros)
It will be shipped without water, all you will need to do is add 500ml of RO water to each bottle. When the solution in each bottle runs out, simply add the refill packet to the appropriate dosing bottle and add 500ml of RO water and you are good to go again.
Add 5ml per 20 gallons of water for each the micro and macro 3x per week on alternating days per the EI dosing instructions.
How long will this last me??
20 Gallon tank- roughly 2 years
40 gallon tank- roughly 1 year
80 gallon tank- roughly 6 months
and so on…
Who needs GH booster:
Unless you have very hard water it is very likely that the addition of Gh booster is necessary. Even if you do have hard water unless you know the concentration of both calcium and magnesium adding some GH booster is suggested.
Why is GH booster suggested:
GH booster will add magnesium and calcium as well as add extra potassium which are all very important to plant growth.
Special thanks to WETS dosing calculator:
Warning: Micro solutions will sometimes grow mold, to prevent this you should either refrigerate it or add 10ml excel to the solution
Concentrations(as per wets calculator):
Fe 0.50 ppm
Mg 0.11 ppm
Mn 0.14 ppm
Mo 0.0038 ppm
Zn 0.03 ppm
