    Hello Smallblockfuelie,
    Please how many grow bed(s) of 18" X 30' or 4' X 30' grow box(s) will the 10oz micro-nutrient serve and for how long will it last?

    I've found that if you keep the Epsom salt separate and mix it when you need it will keep the mix dry. I mix mine up in a small bucket (about 1.5 or 2 gallon), takes about a cup of Epsom salt per 1.5 gallon of the rest of the ingredients for the weekly feed mix. The other solution was to add a little powdered lime to coat the mix to keep the salt from drawing water in.

    I did a soil test and it already has too much magnesium. Then it wouldn't make sense to add more? However my soil is short in potassium.

    I appreciate your research and sharing your information. However, these numbers don't mean much to me unless I know the size area this will serve or how long it will last or $ per square foot or some other means of determining the cost of growing food using this. Perhaps if you could provide a means of judging the costs against my garden it would be helpful to subscribers. Tks for posting.
