Hello, I need a bit of help with growing Tomatoes. I previously grew Cucumbers and I had alot of trouble with managing my nutrient solution. It seems it was very easy to overfertilize the plant, even with the slightest amounts. Basically I couldn't even come close to an EC of 1.0. I want to grow some dwarf tomatoes from seed, however I need a general idea of how much nutrient to use. I will be using the General Hydroponics 3 part nutrient solution, I was thinking of going on two weeks of plain water to irrigate the rockwool after germination, and after two weeks I was going to use 1/4 teaspoon of each bottle, after that I'm not sure how much to increase by. Does this sound like a good plan?
