Started this thread with the goal of sharing some of our favorite nutrient recipes. The format will be in ppm and follow the N-P-K-Ca-Mg. As an example my current favorite veg recipie is 160-30-230-100-30.
Looking forward to seeing what others here are using:D

Using all teas here this year , bat guano , seabird **** , and worm castings.

Say , it’s been a long time since I was in college taking Horticultural classes but I vaguely recall a lecture on nutrients and specifically how the mix is proportioned.

NPK , 5-10-5

Would you be so kind as to break down those numbers , what do they mean , are they percentages , because it’s not like 5% nitrogen , 10% phosphorus , and 5% potassium if my memory serves me correctly?

I hope I am making sense.

That is a percentage by volume of the npk so the package contains 5% N 10% P and 5% K, which is really confusing so with hydtobuddy we will deal in ppm. I have a link to angelfire that allows us to reproduce a commercial formulation i will have to find and post:D

Fun fact, the author of Canna Stats, ph, is the originator of the Lucas formula. Lucas told me this himself in a pm years ago, and also anyone reading the Lucas thread at CW now that I think about it lol:D

I'm another one who has no idea how to talk in PPMs... never used a PPM meter, a PH meter, or nuttin fancy.. lol.

Being a broke mofo most of the time, I tend to keep it very simple. I do have a real cheap PPM meter that came with our Zero Water Pitcher...be easy to start checking and keeping track of numbers, especially if it helps prevent over feeding.. great discussion...
