    Hello , I've been using EI for about 3 years now with success , based on the picture attached from EI article
    NO3 uptake is 1-4 ppm per day , PO4 0.2-0.6 ppm per day , depending on the plant biomass , light , co2 .....etc

    My question is about K ? what's the estimated daily uptake for K in a tank ?

    Thanks

    No one knows, it’s all guessing, because there is no affordable K test kit for hobbyists to monitor K.
