What's the Max Nute Concentration for 1 Gallon

    I am using the undercurrent nute line and sensi grow with conniseur bloom. It would be much simpler to premix a very concentrated amount in 1 gallon of water. I know if I mix the nutes together without adding water the chemicals will react. So whats the Max PPM I can mix in 1 gallon of water for each of those nutrient lines?

    Dont worry about the plants my drip system activates a small pump that ensures the ppm of my res is safe. Just not sure how concentrated I can go without ruining the chemistry.

    I don't know but maybe 50 gallons worth of concentrate is a good place to start. It will liked make a very acidic solution and it will likely start to form salts below some ph level, but I don't know how low the ph will drop or when the salts will form.

    I'm not familiar with your brand of nutrients, and I'm sure each is slightly different, so the best way to find out is to start with a small amount, say a pint or even just a cup, and then add enough to simulate the amount of concentrate you want, then let it sit over time to see if anything precipitates out. I'm not sure if you'll have luck making too concentrated a solution as you'll probably get into the same issues as what happens when mixing without water. Bottom line, this isn't really a lazy man's game, lol, and if it was easy, anyone could do it ;?D
