See the fertilizing section for full details. There is a sticky that describes it well.

I actually don't think the name is a very good one. It really doesn't describe the method and it's a bit confusing.

A name like "resettable overdosing" would be more descriptive. The idea is basically to dose everything in super-abundance while performing large weekly water changes to even it all out.
