Any experience with SA hydro 5-11-26

tampahydroApril 22, 2009

I am using SA hydro 5-11-26 nutrient for peppers and tomatoes. I am adding the epsom salts, but do not have any calcium nitrate (hoping hard tap water will temporarily suffice).

My question is should I use the recommended amounts? If not does anyone have advice for me. I am growing smaller cherry tomatoes, various hot peppers, and hopefully some bell peppers this year.

5-11-26 and epson salts do not have calcium. There is a good chance that you will have BER on both peppers and tomatoes.
