I am hoping this post can help reduce any complications to acquiring great yields in Squamish and in all likeliness, Vancouver, as the formula originated there near 2005 and was at the optimal ph when mixed with water. From what I remember, Vancouver and Squamish have similar water ph near neutral.
So, without further wordiness, let’s get right to the mixture that will deliver great results without the need for additives. In general terms, some standard numbers are a PH between 5.5 and 6.2 and a PPM of 1000ppm-1500ppm. Of course, that is general as plant species can get very specific. With that said, a mixture like that will grow healthy lettuce, kale, peppers, cukes, herbs and flowering plants.
Essentially, using mixing Growlode ‘A’ with Growlode Veg ‘B’, or mixing Growlode ‘A’ with Growlode Bloom ‘C’ will leave the water with a PH around 5.9 and a PPM(parts per million) near 1350. The rate of mixture for this is somewhere near 1/4 teaspoon per gallon of each.
Alternatively, with a larger tank of 55 gallons(you know, those large blue ones that run for $10 each) can be mixed with 1/4 cup to 1/2 cups each; the former amount for small plants and the latter as they grow large. For even larger reservoirs, a 250 gallon drum can be filled with 2.5 cups each of ‘A’ and ‘B’ or ‘A’ and ‘C’.
