I had a course in plant nutrition back in the 1960's, and it was taught that ratios were not important, but that concentrations of individual elements were. There existed a concentration for every nutrient below which, the plant could not get enough for maximum growth and above which, it could. The amounts of other elements did not affect significantly these concentrations. As long as all nutrients were above their critical concentrations, ratios could vary widely.
