My Gecko nutrients came in (MasterBlend)

Sweet...
Where have you been all my life... It is like Jacks that you can get here.
for 5 gallons of water i used
14 grams tomato mix well
7 grams of magnesium sulfate mix well
14 grams of calnit....mix well.

I have a bag of epsom salts...but this stuff i think was worth buying. It is so uniform in shape it looks like pieces of plastic. Disolves very nice and quick and the content is exactly right.

TDS 1300. I will put it down a bit. I will water this one down to 1000 to get a baseline to see how it works but wow it mixes good, the calnit i just left to disolve and shook it up.

This will provide the variability i need in N during bloom if the girls start looking weird.

This cost 140 to my door (CDN = 100 USD roughly). It is the equivalant of 5 gallons of AN trio in coverage (1000 TDS in 5 gallon bottles...this should fill 425 of those bottles or about 1 year of my use).

They are based in Calgary and provide free shipping in Canada.
I think you have to buy a certain amount but the big kit is over the threshold.

#1 mixes like a champ. #2 takes about 60 seconds to disolve and calnit takes a while...but this version is smaller in diameter than the chunks in MC so it goes ok even with cool water.

When mixed it stays in suspension and is a pale yellow.
This is awesome too because
Pale blue = jacks
pale yellow = master
dull brown = MC
Pale green = Dynagrow
Pale red with the multi layer (micro will not stay in suspension) AN trio.

It helps when i can look at it and know what i mixed up yesterday. I make tomorrows water today... FUTURAMA!


12g 6g 12g in a 6 gallon bottle is right on 1000 TDS. No burn or objections so far.

A couple of things i found make it a little easier

For a 5 gallon bottle they recommend 12g 6g 12g (Tomato-EpsomSalts-Calnit). That comes in pretty hot..1300 or so tds

For seedlings and young ones i am using 6 3 6

i will try the even ratio to see what the girls look like and dial down the calnit as required.

To mix it...tomato formula...and epsom salts disolve almost instantly. Calnit in hot water disolves so fast i dont know why i didnt try it before.

It mixes in about 5 minutes now. Fantastic.
