Using Chuck's Calculator (assuming I'm understanding it correctly) if you took 1 teaspoon and mixed it in say 8 ounces of water, you would only need to put about 13ml of the solution into 10 gallons of water to get the desired PPM. That same 1 teaspoon of dry fert just dumped into the tank would jack the PPM out of this world.

Am I understanding it right that mixing it with water dilutes it down? Or am I just not seeing the whole picture and missing something? Is the solution (water mixed) just as strong (8 ounces) as 1 teaspoon of dry mix? Would the PPM level be the same between the two whether watered down first or dry dosed?

The way I'm seeing it right now, it makes more sense to dry dose cause you get higher PPM per dose. But at the same time...I'm thinking that I'm not seeing it straight....

I think you'd get the same PPM results with 1 teaspoon as you'd get with that same teaspoon in 8 ounces of water. The calculator is just saying you'd get a certain PPM by a certain ML if you mixed into a solution instead of dry...have I confused you as much as I've confused myself?
