ALL AUTOS BABY and some photos
I keep it in mason jars with desiccant packs. Shake em up every now and then to mix. Been keeping it dry for 3 runs now...
Yeah....measuring small amounts like 1-2 grams at a time STINKS with the little balls. :biggrin: I actually grind up my MC in a coffee grinder then put it in a ziplock bag. Grow on friends!!

XOXO
Excellent idea my wife just loves it.

I tried this since I can never get it to fully dissolve but it makes it a lot heavier and easier to absorb moisture, so gotta adjust everything accordingly. Still doesn't make it fully dissolve btw...

Found a baggy of OG Kush CBD from 2020, Oh man....
Or rather than it being "easier to make a stock solution which is lets say 200x concentrated...and use a syringe to measure," MC might ideally be manufactured in pre-weighed water-soluble solid forms. Perhaps have 1, 10 and 100 gram chalk-like rods with finer graduations (in grams) etched in so they can be easily broken or cut at an exact point (weight of MC). From there, just throw the sticks in the water.
That might work, but could also mean it would be harder to dissolve into water.
I respect the fact that MC sells it's product in dry form as with all other "bottled nutrients" you are paying for 90% water. And lets not forget the carbon footprint to ship bottled nutrients compared to dry product.

Hey @pop22 - Did Ed say anything about amino acid supplementation?
I have some quality fully soluble amino acid. What's the best time to spray for foliar feed and what to do with the lights?
I sprayed a few days ago with a weak solution to test. I turned the lights all the way down, sprayed, waited to dry and dialed the lights back. I got a pretty good response from all.

@Mañ'O'Green - quick question. I see two different NPK regimes for Week 7+ (10-7-14 and 9-5-15). Any guidance on which one to use? Have you had more success with one than the other?

Thanks in advance and apologies if previously answered.

Edit: unless the second Week 7+ should be 8+
I don't think I updated the NPK numbers to match what I actually used. Let me go edit that part and repost it.

Ok I just went over that chart and I remember I bumped up the N Higer than I wanted because I needed the Ca. In week 8 the 9-5-15 should be good.

Thanks @Mañ'O'Green - much obliged. Three follow up questions:
1. I am using RODI water (O ppm) and adding CalMag+ to 80ppm before I add anything else. Sound right?
2. I see you add NPK industries RAW K as indicated - is it necessary to achieve balance?
3. I know you use B-vit for its MgSO4 - can I use Epsom salts at the same quantity?
Thanks in advance!

1. Yes.
2. Yes. The problem with most nutrient lines including MC 2 Part is you get too much N before you get enough P-K at the lower PPMs we run. I have a new product (new to me) that will allow me to make further adjustments in late flower - stay tuned.
3. Yes as long as you are using a 9% Mg 12% S blend.
