    Oh yeah, 1:500-1:1000 for maintenance drench/foliar. 1:500-1:250 drench/foliar for any active root/pest/disease outbreaks.



    It has a whole different set of awesome and beneficial organic acids than Mr. Fulvic.

    I personally use Hydrobuddy. It's the easiest to reverse guaranteed minimums on labels with listed labels.



    I've had fantastic luck with Jack's and Masterblend 3/2 start to finish in soilless with fulvic acid. After transition, perhaps roll it back to 2.75/2? Perhaps consider adding MKP at 1g/gal in flower?

    Even Diamond K gypsum, which is solution grade just gets suspended, not dissolved. I think you will be very happy with organic Metalosate calcium with drippers or Blumats.

    I tried gypsum for half a run during stretch. I run blumats and I couldn’t get it to dissolve properly, had some clogging issues. I ordered a 5# bottle of the Albion Metalsolate Calcium. Don’t expect any solubility issues.

    I know more about fertilizer and less about soil science. I was talking to a gentleman who blends large batches of craft potting soil. He said don't overdo Mg and then have it wash out of the root zone. More small applications are better.

    Whats the application rate of MKP when used with Jacks?

    One gram per gallon = ~ 1 tsp. per 5 gallon bucket

    Absolutely. Just don't go over 50 ppm to buffer Ca with gypsum or you risk locking out K with supplemental feed.


    EDIT: 1 gram gypsum per gallon of potting mix is ~50 ppm Ca, 30 ppm S.

They also claim that because it goes into the leaf better you only have to spray the tops of the leaves. And it allows you to spray with the lights on, with one quarter the amount of whatever ingredient you are spraying.
    Would fulvic do all that?

    I used Optic foliar for quite a while. My guess is that it is a non-ionic surfactant as a sticker/spreader. They had a huge recall a few years back for ingredients not on the label, so it's possible?


    Fulvic chelates nutrients and soap to become translaminar. The soap also works as a drying agent and sticker/spreader. The organic acids in fulvic also protect and prevents stress from pests and disease.
