To 1 liter of DI water add:
60 grams KNO3
10 grams of KH2PO4
25 grams of GH booster
Add 5 mls daily.
Add TMG at 2.5 mls daily.
That's it.
As always, focus more on CO2.
That makes or breaks results more than anything else.

I used fert amounts from the DIY TPN+ solution published on James' site and NO3 data from my water company (the others are still missing). The molecular weights calculation is based on James' dosing calculator.
Big thanks to James, and to Mark for giving me the initial calculation method. As Mark rightly pointed out, this calculation does not include the amounts used by plants and assumes there is no other source of nutrients. It should be used as a guide only.
If you see anything that could or should be modified, please let me know, and I'll edit this post accordingly!!!
