To make dosing easier in the morning, can I pre mix my ferts?

KNO3/KH2PO4/K2SO4 together and CSM+B in a different cups.

Anyone do this? TIA

Yep u certainly can. Make sure to use RO water. Rotalabutterfly has a calculator that will give u how much of what u need to add to however much water to make the solution

Add a little bit of excel in the micro solution to stop it going moldy u can also keep it in the fridge to stop this aswell

What about keeping it dry and not mess with a liquid. I could make the PPS-pro liquid but more of a hassle then anything. I think I'm getting better results from EI anyway.

Good tip on the excel though, definitely done that before.
