So I have some questions about the Jacks 3-2-1 mix and I figured just start a thread so everyone can refer to it in future since it is becoming so widely used.
Question #1. Is there a specific time I wanna ph? Do I ph water first ,or do I just mix part A qnd then part B then together and then ph?
Question #2. I’ve read its crucial to mix the 5-12-26 and the Epson (part A) first and to make sure it completely dissolves before adding part B and have also read its a bit of a chore to dissolve part A, my question is can I slightly heat my water before adding the 5-12-26 and the Epson to help it dissolve quicker or will that create a super saturated solution that I dont want and somehow give me an undesired outcome?
Question #3. In cocoa do I need to add a cal-mag supplement or does the Jacks provide the required amounts i need?
Question #4. Is the Jacks powder harmful health wise in regards to any dust encountered when mixing or measuring? Should I treat it like it has Covid and strap on the mask or is it harmless as long as your not cutting lines and sniffing them?
Question #5. Is silica essential or is it considered a supplement ,and if not essential how will its use help my yeild or overall plant health or harm if not used?
Hope those make sense and if answerable, can help out someone else aswell as myself!
Thanks ahead of time to any and all answers ,opinions, general knowledge!
