So I finally got some but I didn’t realize it is a bottle that you are supposed to attach your hose to. So I’m wondering how much water to mix so I can make my own spray bottle.
It just says it will mix automatically with the hose in the directions so I’m not really sure how to mix it any suggestions on a ratio? And am I supposed to spray the soil too?Thanks

Most stores don't have a ready to use spray bottle, but a concentrated quart. That's what I got, it'll last me forever.

Is there anyway to know if the hose pipe attachment is the same % concentrate?

Everything I've found says that the hose end sprayer is a different form than the concentrated, and no mixing directions are given.
I guess, if your tap TDS is low enough, you could spray some into a bucket and transfer that into a dollar store sprayer.
Just a thought.
