Lucas w/ Vegamatrix

I posted a similar question on IC. I’m hoping to cast a wider net of ideas by posting here as well.

I was gifted a large amount of Vegamatrix bloom, boost and grow. I want to simplify my feeding routine and come up with a Lucas formula for Vegamatrix.
I grow drain to waste in coco and historically used Pure Blend Pro Soil formula at 10ml and CalMg at 2 for my flowering cycle.

Is there a way to input the known ratios of Vegamatrix and get a workable formula, in a drain to waste situation?
Any brainstorming would be appreciated.

Here’s my best shot. Based on the label info…put thru Angelfire calc.
Could be errors. Lots of ammonia based N. I ran the H3ad formula a few years ago.

Lucas 8/16.

The per ML breakdown. Hopefully close, almost certainly not perfect! :grin:

Holy smokes, talk about info on a silver platter.
I owe you a beer!

Question, do I need to add caliMagi to get the numbers in the correct place?
I like the looks of the numbers for the 8/16 and will experiment with them.
Thanks for giving me a direction to head in,

Yes on the calimagic, or other cal/mag supplement. As long as you know the breakdown, so you know what’s being added per ML.
I grow in coco and under cmh, and always need to add extra calcium / mag.

Best wishes on your grow. I’ll check it out.

I worked this up for a friend because he had Jacks on hand. It’s economical.
