Oh I don't mean by using a TDS meter like that. I was confused by that myself when doing it. I meant I use a 1/32 tsp which averages .08g which I add to 160ml of RO water. I did try to use it at first but realized very quickly that it wasn't going to be accurate, from that point I just used a mathematical formula I found to get the solution I was aiming for. When I did try, it registered something like 90ppm but it wasn't completely broken down. Still, it would've gone nowhere near 500.
It is interesting to hear the why though. I'm the furthest thing from a chemist but always enjoy learning new things.
From what I did read on ICPS, a guy suggested a 10 ppm mixture for byblis. Based on your information, I'm not sure if he means 10ppm through measurements or with a TDS meter but if you did soak it in a solution < 500ppm I would wager the seeds will germinate, just it may take longer.
Today I will do what others won't so tomorrow I can do what other's can't.
