    I had posted this before. I made a mistake and THANKS TO MisterBlah getting me looking at where I went wrong and giving actual volumetric math vs. farm charts and misread labels!

    I gave you a "sweet raw" formula that costs about a dollar a gallon and works GREAT!

    NOW THIS!
    Very simple actually

    I figure that if you buy 5 lbs of K2SO4 (Potassium Sulfate) off Amazon -

    https://www.amazon.com/Potassium-Su...=1468941355&sr=8-1&keywords=potassium+sulfate

    that will make you OVER 6 gallons of the formula (Adding the powder to the gallon of water will increase the total volume of the solution!). Then you spend what you would need to buy the amount of dark brown sugar to do the same.

    The cost per gallon would be LESS then $4.00 a gallon to make it!
    The others cost $68 a gallon and $158 for 5L!

    Here I had my farm math. I used a formula to make a 300ppm application solution for 1000 gallons and forgot to multiply the answer by a factor of 28(grams) to back it to a 10% solution. What I posted was the application rate of 300ppm and NOT a 10% concentration! (Thanks again to MisterBlah!)

    SO then 378.5 grams (volumetric math) of that Potassium sulfate powder from Amazon into 1 gallon of water for the 10% solution.
    Add the 1.5 tsp of Dark brown Sugar for the carbs. Mix well till everything is dissolved and jug it! (With my old farm math method, and application charts I got 380 grams [correction]- a simple gain of 1.5 grams from formula shifts over the 1000 gallon conversion in the Greenhouse guide chart)



    FEED CHART
    (DO NOT mix with Silica - this causes a chemical reaction - precipitation)

    STARTING Week 3&4 !
    4-ml in 1 gallon of your feed

    At week 5&6
    6-ml in 1 gallon of your feed

    At week 7 till harvest
    8-ml in 1 gallon of your feed


    I researched the "Rock Resinator" and the "Terpinator" formula's and they use an 8% solution and a 4 % solution respectively!

    I formulated a 10% solution to be better effective faster. I used both products feed charts and normal feeding values of "K" to come up with the feed chart I gave you.
    FOLLOW IT! NO increasing and you'll be safe and happy with the results!

    This should make your lemon taste stronger or deeper, along with the smell!

    This formula will increase the trich and terp production just like the Mg Sulfate formula BUT, will give everything a rather citrus smell and taste - more "lemony" for the most part.

    Changes the taste and smell of any Berry or sour strain to more lemony/citrusy or fuel like..

    Good luck and THANKS AGAIN to @MisterBlah

    Dark Brown Sugar 1.5 tsp packed.

    Not enough carbs in molasses for this, AND I don't want what molasses can bring to the table.....My choice.

    Does this take the edge off piney strains?

    A bit, you might get a pinesol like variation to a stronger lemon with a hint of pine ..

    That's an interesting idea!
    I don't really see why not!
    The only hard part I would look at is to take a gander at the labeling and look for carbs per serving. You want to use an amount that would match the carbs in 1.5 tsp of Dark brown sugar.......

    I used DBsugar for the trace elements involved. If you break down the "real" contents of trace elements in Botanicare's Sweet Raw. The closest thing to deliver that would be DBsugar. That worked better then Botanicares and I figured - whats good for.......so i used it in this too.

    I can't see why at least trying it wouldn't hurt at all.....Just match that carb value and your good!

    Ever thought about swapping out the potassium sulfate for sulfate of potash-magnesia? A hybrid of sweet raw & terpinator?

    Nope! I'm following the makers ingr.
    The other thing is that sulfate of potash-magnesia is an organic called Langbinite or Langbeinite. It is not suited to building a supplement of the type we're doing...

    Does make a great addition to organic soil building!

    Makes sense.
    I noticed that sulfate of potash-magnesia is one of the ingredients in FF Big Bloom, which is actually a very good product.

    been using this on my plants since the first comment i made, a big difference in resin, smell is better too I'm still in beginning curing. I have a sour D strain I'm using on curious on how the smell will be right now that gas smell.
    Do you have any other recipes on hand i can look at? Thanks again

    To make nature do better. Not really.....Micro's, reduce transplant stress and increase root growth by as much as 170+% = Kelp extract! Can't improve on nature there...
    I might suggest you make a 0-9-19 formula using the Potassium sulfate for the K. At week, oh say 6 - add about 2ml of that to your feed ONCE that week and repeat it at week 7 and stop. Try that at weeks 5&6 with another plant. The one that works best - do that one. You'll get increased yields along with that flavor enhancement......This I did when I played with synthetics.......Other things to do would be to use powdered nutrients over bottled and watered down, high priced one's - Jack's is always a first pick on that. Don't really enhance thing's much (till you know what your doing balancing the use of nutrients) More like a shit tone cheaper then paying for "water" in a bottle with some nutrients in it!

    You have seen the Sweet Raw - Mag sulfate one right? Does the same thing except adds a more berry side to the taste/flavor...Very different feeding sched with that one.

    Why is there a warning about precipitation with this formula, but not sweet raw? Does potassium bind with calcium more easily than magnesium? Also, why does the raw formula need to be boiled, but this one doesn't?
    I'm confused...

    How long should you keep the bottle too lit expires ? I have a gallon and have barely touched it

    That's a lot for me too. I may downsize this recipe. My current grow is outdoor so I topped my plants with seabat (seabird & bat guano combination) and langbeinite (sulfate of potash magnesia).
    Using terpinator would be redundant.
