Recipe for Fertilizer

While the general idea was provided in the previous entry for making the iron fertilizer, here are the details…

Starting Solution: Ferrous Sulfate Solution 0.02 Molar, acidified (with sulfuric acid)

Protocol: Take 50mL of the starting solution and add it to 850mL of water (distilled preferred). Once the new volume of solution is mixed add a trace amount of pH Up to achieve a final solution that is 660ppm (0.94EC) and 6.1 pH.

Apply to plants every other day for about a week (four applications over eight days).

The return of green color to the actively growing leaves should be seen by the second or third application and in ten days the plant should be its normal (iron sufficient) green coloration.
