Ok.... Here it goes. I use CSM+B powder as micro. So while dosing,first I dip my finger into aquarium water. Then dip the wet finger back into the CSM dabba. Whatever got stuck to my finger, I wash it back into aquarium. For 50G I repeat the process twice. For 20G Only once.

I kept the powder in an empty KNO3 dabba so it is light proof, and the CSM+B I am using is more than 5 years old but I am yet to see any micro deficiency ever in my plants.

Can you think about any other easier solution?? :D :D :D let me know if you need a step wise pictures of the process. :x
Regards,
Tirtha

One question guys. Is there any possibility that the efficiency of these dry ferts decreases with time when kept for long time?

in dry form, I dont think it gets spoilt at all.
Do you know the expiry date of sugar at home?
Did you check expiry date on your table salt? :ymsmug:

Mine hasnt spoilt

His hasn't spoilt->
