Other neutriants besides aerodarden neutriants

I read success stories about people who use other neutriants besides the general one that aerodarden recommends especially neutriants that are specifically targeted to what you are growing. 

The problem I have is that all of the neutriants com in such large sizes compared to the amount that you need to use. What does anyone do to make or buy such a small amount? I am specifically thinking of using the "Maxigrow" formula but this question applies to all other types of products too? 

 

Thanks

Oh, sorry, those were old posts I was looking at.

A gallon is 768 teaspoons. Most AG reservoirs need one teaspoon a week. No, I wouldn't buy a gallon.

I use Maxigrow, and like it (mixed on the weak side). That's only for the vegetative stage, but I only use it for seedlings and greens. I also use Urban Farm Fertilizers vegetative and tomato organic nutrients - very nice liquid, but more expensive. Liquids are easier to measure accurately with a dosing syringe. I'd like to use 0.8 teaspoons of Maxigrow per gallon for growing lettuce, but have to guesstimate using a dry teaspoon.

Dry nutrients have an unfortunate tendency to cake or melt over time.

Still on the topic of

Still on the topic of nutrients, do the AG Nutrients "go bad" or lose effectiveness? I pondered getting the gallon container but only have 2 Harvests...

Just don't buy the Organic

Just don't buy the Organic stuff. I find it clogs the Aergoarden's.

Anything that is clear and an A&B mix should work well.


The only reason I stick with the Aerogarden stuff is its easier. No mixing.

Try pouring the nutrient

Try pouring the nutrient liquid in a smaller bottle. It makes it a LOT easier to handle.

I buy mine by the gallon and just use the original bottles. Been doing this for the past year.

YMMV
