I'm looking to buy MS macro, micro, and vitamins separately. I thought they would've been cheaper or about the same price that way, but they seem to be more expensive. For example, phytotechlab has the mixed macro & micro for $7.20 but individually they are 7.20 each (10L). For around a dollar more, you can also get it with the vitamins and sucrose. Is this normal and do you know why?
I've read about protocols using a diluted MS media with full micronutrients so I wanted to buy them separately. Since buying MS Macronutrients only was more expensive than full MS, what I ended up doing to slightly save costs was buy full MS media and an additional packet of micronutrients. So I can dilute the full MS and supplement micronutrients into it to bring them back up to full strength.
