I just started using PMDD, and am a little confused as to the dosage that
I should start with. I bought the ingredients from Homegrown Hydroponics,
and used their mixing recipe for the amount of each dry solution to
add. It is a little different from what I have seen on the Krib, but, it
seems that it is focused on making smaller quantities than that on the
Krib. Anyway, my question is this: the article on The Krib says to dose
1/12 mL (one twelfth) of PMDD per 10 gallons of water. Homegrown's site
says to dose 3 mL per 100 L (about 25 gallons I would guess) of water in
your tank. This is a BIG difference. Which should I do? I know that you
should determine the dose that is right for you over time by
experimentation and monitoring levels of NO3 and Fe, but I don't want to
start off OVERDOSING the tank and causing algae problems.
