Dyna-Gro Mag-Pro directions for use
Get blooming with Dyna-Gro Mag-Pro or use it all year round. Here are the directions for use depending on the benefits you're wanting for your plants.
When do you use Mag-Pro?
There are two popular methods:
#1 For bloom boosting: Add Mag-Pro to your fertilising schedule when you notice the first buds forming for the season, then continue adding Mag-Pro every time you water, until the last buds have flowered for the season.
#2 Throughout the growing season: Hobbyists also use Mag-Pro all year-round for the extra Magnesium to help boost foliage colour and support photosynthesis. This method can be used for all plants but is especially popular for Orchids and Hoya who benefit from Mag-Pro during both foliage and flowering stages.
If using RO, rain-water or de-ionised water, Mag-Pro should be added throughout growing season.
What are the directions for Mag-Pro?
Directions and dose depend on use. The recommended dilution rate varies from 1ml Mag-Pro per 1.5 litres of water, to 1ml per 3 litres water.
When used by itself: Although you'll get the best results supplementing Mag-Pro with fertiliser (even better with fertiliser + silicon), you can use Mag-Pro by itself to boost Phosphorus, Magnesium and Sulphur levels. Used alone for a nutrient boost, use Mag-Pro at the standard rate: dilute 1ml Mag-Pro per 1.5 litres water, every time you water.
When mix-feeding: Use your fertiliser at the recommended dose, but halve the dose of Mag-Pro (the easiest way to do that is by doubling the water). For example, if using Dyna-Gro Foliage Pro fertiliser, and ProTeKt silicon supplement, you would use 2mls ProTeKt + 2mls Foliage Pro + 1ml Mag-Pro per 3 litres water, every time you water.
Please note when mix-feeding: Mix-feeding dilution rate (above) is based on staying within the Dyna-Gro family of products, as Dyna-Gro fertiliser is complete and balanced. If your go-to fertiliser is not complete and balanced, use Mag-Pro at the standard dilution rate of 1ml per 1.5 litres water.
What the label says: Dyna-Gro is made in the USA so the label can get a bit confusing converting gallons to litres. The label gives you the standard dose as from 1/4 teaspoon to 1/2 a teaspoon per 1 gallon of water. One US gallon is 4.5 litres, and 1 teaspoon is just under 5mls, so converted and rounded, that ends up just under 1ml to 2mls Mag-Pro per 3 litres water.
