Nutrient Calculator

Support and resources

The Cultured Solutions nutrient calculator will create a custom feeding schedule for your reservoir or hydroponic system and break down the total volume of each nutrient required for a full cycle.

These Nutrient Calculators are tailored to suit four different growing methods.

Select the calculator that best suits your growing situation:

Drain To Waste

Drain to Waste Nutrient Calculator

Use our simple nutrient calculator to get recommended quantities of Cultured Solutions® nutrients for your reservoir.

Fill in the yellow box below with your total system or reservoir volume in gallons.

All Cultured Solutions® quantity recommendations are in mL/gallon.

Maintain PPM or EC levels within our general recommendations.

For best results maintain pH between 5.8 – 6.2, allow pH levels to swing between 5.5 – 6.5 without making adjustments.
