    Is there a dosing schedule like ei for a hydroponic garden? I wanted to grow bell peppers and I have a bunch of dry ferts that I would like to use but im not sure what to add or what ferts to even use. Anybody have any experience with hydroponic fertilizing??

    At the place I work they use a way similar to hydrophonics to grow strawberries. A solution of ferts is used, pretty much CSM+B with NPK, each cycle 2/3% of the solution is added to the water which is being dripped to the plants. The number cycles is based on the weather, if it's hot and sunny we run more.

    I have no idea how concentrated the dose is since it's based on conductivity using µS, I'd have to check how high it actually is at the moment.

    Hydroponics, search Hoagland's solution modified. Then also specific for the species of plant you wanna grow, it's about 5x more concentrated than EI.

    You might not need to flush the system that often, just stick with the protocols listed for Hydropnics, there's a great deal more written specific to the plants you want to grow.
