Question about nutrients

A question of a fellow grower:
For Hydro DWC with your nutrients if it says 1/2 tsp per gallon and I usually fill my 5 gallon buckets with roughly 3 gallons of water. Should I be putting in (1 1/2 tsp) total. I found that with the seedling nutes in the sample pack I could barely mix up 2 buckets and ran out of that nutrient. Just want to make sure I’m not over doing it. I’m going by per gallon and like I said I use 3 gallons of water in my 5 gallon DWC.

@bryan @Grandaddy013 are both in RDWC I believe. But that sounds correct to me. I’m sure they can offer more insightful advice.

For one thing, seedlings do not need nutrients untill they have 5 to 6 true sets of leafs

I usually start with about 1/2 of what manufacturer says and go from there
