    I want to try using a stock solution -vs- small handcrafted artisan batches of nutes.

    I understand that calcium nitrate and certain phosphates/sulfates are incompatible in stock solutions. Greenleaf says that megacrop is good to 100x+ by itself.

    If I am using Megacrop + Sweet Candy + MKP. How many stock solutions are needed and which can be combined? I am assuming I can't make a 1 part at 50x or 100x...

    You can use Mega Crop and MPK in a stock solution together (100x), but Sweet Candy should not be used in the same stock solution (it should be separate).

    A small amount of Calcium is expected to fall out of solution at high Mega Crop concentration, however there are other Calcium chelated sources that will not fall out, so you should not get deficiencies from this. Also, once mixed at normal concentration in feed water, the fallout Calcium will redissolve into the solution and become accessible to the plants (this may take 12-24 hours process to redissolve).

    Thanks!

    What about the maximum concentration of all 3 parts mixed? I made a batch around 2.0 ec and diluted that down to 1.0 as needed. How high can I go in a premixed solution? I might try a 4.0ec next.

    as
    high as you want. When people make stock solutions, they usually do 50x minimum, but whatever works!
