    How often should I dose? I was going to does after every water change (every 1-2 weeks). Too often, not often enough? Good?

    It's doing better. I'm getting good growth now of about 1-2 leaves per week, per plant. Thanks John!

    You're welcome, you will most likely need to change the bulb every 6 to 12 months depending on plant growth.
