"The University of Florida recommends that 2 tsp. of a good commercial fertilizer, such as Miracle-Gro, be added to every gallon of water used in a hydroponic system. The University of Florida also recommends adding 1 tsp. of Epsom salts to every gallon of water to complete the hydroponic formulation."
wonder if the university was 'sponsored' by miracle gro?
jokes aside, there are much better nutrients than miracle gro, that work out a lot cheaper, especially if you foliar feed ... (4ml per litre of water)
look at stuff like Biobizz fishmix, Biobizz alga-mic, Advanced nutrients iguana juice grow etc .... I use these as a foliar feed .... these are all all aimed/marketed to the medical cannabis sector, but knocks the socks off any of the other 'commerical crap' and well worth the money spent IMHO
