**This chart above demonstrates a basic guideline for fertilizer application for some popular
plant types. Column "A" represents a formula for seedlings from 2 to 4
weeks of age. Column "B" is for crops 4 weeks to maturity and column
"C" is used for plants bearing fruit from bud set to harvest. Upper chart shows
milliliters (or cc's) suggested per gallon of water, lower portion utilizes teaspoons

**These calculations above represent approximate Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium (NPK)
values only and are intended to provide a guideline to modify or construct a nutrient for
varying needs. The numbers in the columns represent TEASPOONS per GALLON. The
formulas may be multiplied to achieve your desired concentration. EXAMPLE: The first
line in the chart recommends 1 TSP MICRO BASE and 1 TSP. GROW #1 in ONE GALLON of WATER to
achieve a 2-2-6 NPK ratio formulation yielding approximately 800 parts per million of
total dissolved solids. To make the 2-2-6 formula solution twice as strong, use 2
TSP. per gallon, Micro Base and 2 TSP. per gallon Grow #1. This will increase the
total dissolved solids to approximately 1600 PPM. See The Genesis Formula label for
specific instructions on how to mix the nutrients.**

**This chart is used to calculate the elemental values of combined Genesis components.
The first vertical blue
column Element
lists the typical constituents of the formula. The next three columns represent
the values for the MicroBase part of the formula. The yellow
PPM columns represent the value of one milliliter of Genesis liquid concentrate
in one gallon of water. The violet
ml
columns shows the milliliters of concentrate added. And the green
Total
columns are the total for each element after multiplied by the milliliters added
of that Genesis component. The second, third and fourth sets of three
columns show these values for the other Genesis components added as represented by
Grow #1, Grow #2, or Bloom #3. The final red
Total column shows the sum of the component values
in ppm when accumulated horizontally for each element. This column will be your actual PPM
values of your finished formula. By changing the proportions of the Genesis
components you can achieve a wide variety of formula variations to suit any
plant in any stage of growth. See the example form filled out below.**

**Example:**

**If one ml of MicroBase (MB) is added to
one gallon of water 4 ppm of nitrate nitrogen (NO3) has been added as has the
relative amounts of all the other elements in the MicroBase. If 10 ml (two tsp)
of MB is added to one gallon of water then logically 40 ppm of NO3 has been
added. Then if 5 ml (one tsp) of Grow #1 (GW-1) is added to the same water, an
additional 10.7 ppm per ml of NO3 is added or 5 X 10.7 = 53 ppm total has been
additionally added to bring the total NO3 so far to 93 ppm. Now if 5 ml of GW-2
is added, 5 X 13.7 equals 68 ppm more of NO3. Now we have a total of 93 + 68
giving us 161 ppm NO3. Then again by adding 5 ml of BM-3 we introduce another 31
ppm we have added in total 192 ppm of NO3. This is how we determine the combined
values of NO3 added with each addition of the different Genesis components to
the same gallon (3785 ml) of water. Use the same principle for each of the
elements in each of the Genesis components, MB, GW-1, GW-2, or BM-3. The final
red Total column is the total values of each element totaled horizontally in
each row.**

**NOTE: Not all Genesis components are
necessary to build a complete formula. ****Usually
the MicroBase and one or two of the secondary components is adequate. The chart
above would be an example of the following
formula mix. **

**10ml Micro Base (MB)
5ml Grow #1
5ml Grow #2
5ml Grow #3
added to each gallon of water**

**This formula is only an example and not
****necessarily a recommended
formula. **
