    it all may be partly related to my source water

    I might have some Fe in my source water... someone else might have more/less and need less/more

    im also see some very mild Ca def in the bottom fan leaf of only one plant... so next time I will raise my Ca to 60ppm

    they seem to be competing no matter what I set it at...
    raise the zinc i get Fe def, raise the Fe get zinc def

    so in conclusion on the Fe and zinc.. they seem to be happy with 1.5ppm Fe and 0.5ppm zinc (which seems high).. and even at that amount i still may add zinc on rare occasion to my foliar feed...

    the chelated Fe makes zinc less available

    ok i think iover that topic...starting to look like a damn journal in here lol

    wow this is old but since it just got a like i should point out

    I didn't say it in the post above

    but after all the salts have been added to the bucket I top the bucket off to fill it to the top(or close) with water

    @im4satori hey, just wanted to say thanks. your nutrient breakdowns of GH floranova bloom and GH maxibloom have really helped. i'm using maxibloom now and couldn't be happier. no additives, just either RO, well or a mix of the 2.

    any time happy to be of help and pay it forward :bigjoint:

    im getting help from the organic gurus at the moment

    really happy with what the organic grows are putting out
    (true organic soil amendment builds, not liquid store bought nutes)

    increase quality and yield

    on my 3rd organic run now and really couldn't be happier

    but I will say, its more work than hydro of basic liquid fertilizer
