    Heeeeelp...... I just received GA3 for Byblis hybrid seeds....

    ...and I don't understand how many grams of this to mix with how much water. The table is cornfusing! All I know is that it's 20% and I've got as scoop:

    It depends on the size of the scoop, should say in the instructions what size scoop.

    Otherwise with 20% GA3 to make the standard 1000 ppm solution it would be 5 grams per 1 liter of water.

    NaN brings up a good point, what size "scoop" do you have?
    The link you gave provided you with many "mixing table" instruction links depending on the size of scoop they sent you, and the tables show exactly how many "scoops" per liter or per "#" of oz. to use, depending on the concentration you want. Without knowing what size scoop you have, it will be kind of hard for anyone to even begin to answer your question.

    Now if you have a decent "scale", that might be more universal of a question to answer,
    but since you seem to be depending on the measurement/"scoop" method of measuring,
    indeed more info will be needed.

    Or perhaps were you only asking about the "1000 ppm"/standard concentration normally used when using the mix for seed?

    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    The scoop itself has written, "Measurex Nazareth, PA on it. It might have the number 7 also. I took the smallest measuring spoon we had and filled it with water and counted how many times it took to fill the 1/8 tsp. As far as I can tell, it took 4 scoops worth, meaning that one scoop is 1/64 of a teaspoon.... of liquid measure, not grams of solid measure. I tried looking at conversion charts and there isn't one for teaspoon to grams, of course.

    3 tiny white plastic scoops listed. 3 different lengths. If you get the length of the scoop then we can probably figure out which one it is.

    Hey Jim, accroding to the conversion thing on the internet I found, 1/64 of a teaspoon (0.015625 tsp) is equal to 0.078125 grams. Then if you look at the link you provided the closest spoon to that is only 0.002 grams away. I would guess the spoon you have is the 0.076 gram spoon. Also maybe the 7 stands for the 0.076 spoon?

    The length of the handle is 3". With the measuring part, it's ~3 1/4". I have no idea what that 7 is for, though.

    Have you tried asking the vendor for scoop size verification?
