Since the chloramine remover works by converting ammonia to ammonium ion,
and since plants can utilize ammonium ion as well as ammonia, there's no
need to come up with a "right dose."  Add the appropriate amount of
dechloraminator (dictated by the chloramine level of your water) to your
water and let your plants slurp up the ammonium.
