Default Nutrient Concentrate Solutions

Hey there, just getting into hydroponics with a salad greens wall, and wondering about how people store their 2-part stock nutrient concentrate solutions? I'll be using a typical dry mix with separate A and B parts in 5 gallon buckets, hooked up to dosers to maintain EC in my reservoir. I've read differing opinions on whether to agitate the concentrated solutions (not the reservoir itself, I'll definitely have air stones in that). Some people do, some people don't, some use air, some use a small pump. Any help I'd appreciate - I want to do things right. Thanks, Peter

I donít see the need to use air stones in the concentrated nutrients since you would only be adding a small portion of it to already oxygenated water in the reservoir. You should keep the concentrated nutrients in a cool dark place.
