Chlorine removal, etc. - Knowledgebase Question

I understand that chlorene will dissipate from an open gallon container in 24 hours.

To properly dissolve nutrients, it is best done when filling a container.

My question is: will the dissolved nutrients evaporate as well?

Good question! Chlorine evaporates in about 24 hours but the nutrients you add to the water will not. They are chemically different. If you're concerned, just wait 24 hours, add them to the water, and shake up the jug or bottle prior to use.
