Bill, back when i had my large clumps of cephs I would place the ceph pot in a larger pan and fill the outer pan with the solution until the level was slightly less then the surface level of the cephs. Id let it sit like this for 10-15 mins then remove and let the excess drain. It seemed to work very well for me. I was able to get clumps of a 100 or more pitchers without issue.
Why not just use 1/4tsp and a quart of water?... or the granular if you prefer. I tend to use the granular for potting and transplanting. But it works well in both applicaitons, just a little funky looking (snot like)
Thanks a lot for mixing tip. I followed your 1/4tsp to a quart recipe in an outer pan. Then dumped my net pot to be leveled with the quart and it's soaking for 10 minutes as I write this. Thanks man!
