Woah, slow down pardner. This bit needs a bit of explanation. When you say
I infer you mean  NO3, K, PO4, S, Ca/Mg? What amounts?

Unrelatedly, referring to units of measure, why we we keep saying "watts per
instead of "watts per square foot", and why aren't we using gram
measurements for
things like "a quarter teaspoon" ?
