    Hey WR,

    Not sure why they made it so difficult, but grams and milliliters (ml) and cubic centimeters (cc) are identical. We're talking volume here, NOT weight; grams can be both, so it's easy to get confused.

    Four quarts in a gallon, so .5ml per quart equals 2ml per (US) gallon.

    I always thought one teaspoon was 5ml though...

    Hmm, hope this helps anyway :)

    Cheers and good luck!

    I use a measure syringe and it is in cc's. This is equivilant to a ml.
    I don't know my conversions, and though it sounds like Moto has it nailed for you, I am not doing the conversions myself, so I can't say.
    The gram is also a ml (liquid wieghts, that Moto is dead on about).
    So 1/2 a ml per liter. How liters to a gallon = a
    a x .5 = how much bud blood you need to use.

    Wow, I'm so high, I'm second guessing that....
    (This is a disclaimer just in case you missed that...)

    there's closer to 5litres to 1 gallon so 2grams of nute =4litres so 2.2 grams is good for 1 gallon(roughly) there for use a mix at 1quarter strength which is 0.5grams per gallon.... how to ..@#$@# its only a pinch. that must pack a punch that stuff

    There are 3.78 liters in a gallon. If you use the recommended amount, you want to use 1.89 ml (3.78 liters x .5 grams or ml) per gallon. If Bud blood is 7 grams per teaspoon, you want to use just slightly over 1/4 teaspoon (.27 t) per gal.
