Starting too yes. Still figure 3 more weeks
Anything special you two do to bring down ph in dirt
I checked yesterday for curiousity and sitting at 7.5 which is high
I understand my water will effect the potentcy, so likely need to only use a bit. Definitely want to get it right before flower
I no longer have to or need to ph my soil or my water anymore but really only 2 options that I know of. You should look into LOS and save yourself the headaches
flush the soil with ph balanced R/0 water at 6.5 until your leach is 6.5. Then feed x amount of your nute water at 6.5
On the days that you’re going to feed your plants nutrients put your pH to 6.0. And days you’re only giving water to your plants give him pH of 6.0. After so many watery‘s it should bring down your pH to the level you’re looking for
I am using los. But they were potted in foxfarm to start. Ill be transplanting out into new los pots fpr flowering stage, just trying to correct ph before then. Maybe its not needed.
High ph can also come from too many nutrients yes?
What are you using for feed?
I added gaia nutrients per specifications for 3 gallons. Tips of leaves are burnt so i know its a slight food nutrient burn because foxfarms on its own never gave me burn
In a couple weeks ill transplant into coco mix, gaiabloom, worm castings, perilite, thats it. Wont be feeding it unless top dressing down the road.
You ever consider compost tea over top dress if needed?
I take back everything I said above.
I wouldn’t do option 1 or 2
If you flush your going to wash out all the food out of the soil.
I would start here
lift the plant out of the pot are the roots white? If they are do nothing.
Your feeding R/O water correct? What is it’s starting ph?
I just started testing the water. Seems higher than it has, likely because its spring. Dont ask. Sitting at 7
I have an 11 litre ph down to 6.0 atm will water today for their regular feed. As its foxfarms im sure the roots are good
This is what i will be using
Is your water source chlorine free?
You shouldn’t use Acid to lower your Ph if your trying to grow 100% LOS. It’s kills soil
I would use lemon juice
Good to know, ill try that. Water is chlorinated and flouridied
I buy water thats treated but bet they get it from the city whose runoff in spring affects everything in our water such as color, taste, and ph. Typically were at 6 ph. So i was surprised to see 7. Which means they mjght have had a spike, but are taking it well and was caught right away
Just for info purposes chlorinated water kills the bacteria and fungus in your soil intern damages your living organic soil.
Now I’m not saying you can’t grow using it but automatically ph balance from LOS may not work as good at least this is what I’ve been taught.
Thats why i buy its not chlorinaded. Tap water is. Which i never use but even more of reason not too
I use this stuff from the store
Like i said , likely city water which it is. But its dechloranated
Looks like im ok
I cant screen shot on my phone
Ill be doing that soon enough lol
Looking really nice bro
Shes doing ok. Hopefully get the water ph under control today. If so shell recover fine and ill be able to transplant soon prior to flowering. Im pretty sure i can get most of the canopy to cover the tent
I was just reading the issues u were sounds like u got it pretty figured out tho caught my attention plus I’m currently using the same Medium
I had 2 ph testers in the water 3 days ago, one reading 4.5 and one reading 7.0 even after ph down. So getting new pen for testing. Mine are 3 years old. Then well be good. Cant afford mychrohaze but will try some myco grow which does the same thing for less. When i transplant. Might video it might not. Depends on space.
