How long does it last? And if you don't mind, could you explain to me the concept of how to dose pps pro? Thank you!

I bought my EI package in early august and its just now running out for fertilizing a 55g and 10g.

for pps pro:
In 1 liter bottle:
59 grams K2SO4 (Potassium Sulfate)
65 grams KNO3 (Potassium Nitrate)
6 grams KH2PO4 (Mono Potassium Phosphate)
41 grams MgSO4 (Magnesium Sulfate)
Fill with distilled water and shake well. Let sit overnight.

Micro Solution

In 1 liter bottle:
80 grams of CSM+B or equivalent trace element mix
Fill with distilled water and shake well. Let sit overnight.

Dose 1ml of each daily per 10g of tank volume.

In either dosing regimen I would mix the nitrate separately.

Because if you mix it together with the rest of the ferts you have no control over raising your nitrate levels for no reason. Either of the fert packs will last you 6 months +

Should I use root tabs? I want to have crypts, amazon swords, and jungle vallisneria. If so, how many root tabs?
