PPS-Pro recipe storage

Hello I am just getting started with dry ferts (thanks to Orlando from GLA) and now going to use the PPS Pro Solution. I will be using a 500ml bottles to mix in (macros and micros). The question I have is how long is the mix good for once I combine each of them in the bottles? Do you need to refrigerate or anything special with it once it is mixed?

Hi jeepn4x4,
I mix up about 2 weeks worth at a time. When I first started dosing, I used tap water. After a week or so fungus would appear in the solution.
Now I use distilled water and store at room temperature in old Seachem bottles that I saved. I add a couple of drops of fungus treatment to each bottle as well.
Hi jaidexl,

I had a problem with fungus in my ferts as well, my trace mix was the most susceptible. Now I try to mix up no more than I can use up in about two weeks. I also changed to distilled water instead of tap water and I add a few drops of fungus medication to the mix.
