I'm subscribed.
You can get potassium nitrate easily. Ask any pansari for kalmi shora. It's KMNO3.
I am growing some plants in coco coir. I would love to see a DIY hydroponic fertilizer.
I use my aquarium's water, add a bit of hydrogen peroxide for the extra dose of oxygen.

Correct, I kept the PPM low as I want to spray once and twice a week.
Details later.

Three pots of petunia;
O will get fortnightly 200PPM of 20-20-20 and no foliar fertilisation.
I will in addition get weekly foliar spray of strength mentioned above.
II will be sprayed twice a week in addition to routine fertilisation.
What do you expect?
PS, KNO3 is freely available at chemical shops
Arif
As today

The results are not always as expected, or may be they are different cultivars.

they most probably are different cultivars, hence no point of the experiment for true results

In my opinion O is yellowish with long inter-nudes due to low nutrients as compare to I and II are healthy.
