I recently bought a hydroponics window box. I am very optimistic and excited to start my new hydroponics system! The big thing is that I have never experimented with a hydroponics system before and I would really like some tips and pointers on what to do and what NOT to do. I was thinking of growing cilantro and mimosa pudica in the window box. I ordered Bonticare pure blend grow pro for the nutrients but I am not sure if I want/need any other nutrients to add. I tried finding out the required N-P-K value for cilantro and mimosa pudica but I couldn’t ever find it. I am very new to this. Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Your plants will need some trace elements i found that in a lot of fertilizers you'll get most of what you need straight away a high N value will help your plants grow bigger roots to start off with the other two are for other functions like fruiting which i think is potassium just be wary of your PH and keep to something with a High Nitrogen value to start with and you should be golden have a peek at whats in the mix i messed up and diddn't have any calcium or magnesium in my mixes easily remedied with Epsom salts for magnesium and i had to grab a small bag of calcium nitrate from a gardening Depo oh and it needs to be water soluble! you will need a TINY amount of the trace elements if your missing any the big ones are N-P-K which for cilantro i figure you should be ok
