I just worked up my first solution of KNO3 and KH2P04 for macro dosing. The problem is that I can't get my KN03 powder to fully dissolve in my solution. Here's what I did...

I used Gadd's Windows app for calculating the amount of dry ingredients. I proceeded with:

2 Tbs KNO3 in 100ml (distilled water) = 5.42 ppm Nitrate for each ML of solution added to my 10g nano

1 Tsp KH2P04 in 100ml (distilled water) = .88 ppm Phosphate for each ML of solution added to my 10g nano

Does the KN03 just take a while to fully dissolve?

Thanks.

Remember dry ferts need to be dissolved in a small amount of warm water first. Then you add the rest of the water to it after the solids have dissolved.
