Sorry. I’ve never paid attention to mixing order.

What line of nutrients you’re using, may be the most helpful part of this question, before a proper answer can be given.

Silica is always first no matter what line you use.
So Amour Si first,
Part A
Epsom (if used)
Part B
If any microbes are used like recharge or mycos then add them last.
Let each one dissolve completely before adding next.
Adjust pH

I find Jacks part A to be the one that takes the longest to dissolve.
If the water is cold then it takes longer. If I let it get to room temp its better.
A little warm and its faster, maybe like 75 to 80.

How about this scenario. You mix nutes for what you estimate is 6 gallons in the rez. When you check, it is weak. So you mix for another gallon. I add it in the A, E, B order, but does it matter what since A is now following B or terp tea.

More an issue for their undiluted forms, once in water it’s so dilute the problematic chemistry dosent happen much.

Good advice not going to kill you of you don’t.
