Neither fish nor plants. I was referring to a sudden change in the chemistry of water.
Let's take another example. You put some oil in a pan and then put the pan on stove. It heats up gradually.
Now imagine heating up the pan first and then putting the oil on it. You see what I am trying to say?
So if we need to dose say 10 ml micro solution, instead of dumping the whole 10 ml just in one go, I am wanting to dose 1 ml every hour for 10 hours.
The thing I don't know is the rate at which plants consume these nutrients. Is it more than 1 ml/hour? If it is, i shouldn't do what I am thinking. If it's not that way, my experiment would do just fine.
What do you think?
