Ok. I’ll do the same mix for the soil. Need to wait few more days for her to grow and than i transplant her. She is doing grate for now althought i already feed her by mistake. The ph of water is 6.5
I just don’t know if the ph meter for soil is working properly. Bought a new one but think it isn’t working good. The soil should be 6.5 and the water is the same… the meter is showing always 7… I think it’s not so acurate. Any sugestion on where to buy some reliable measuring tools?

What’s the “longest” time I can keep her in vegetation period? Has someone here tried to find the maximum veg for ww? Because the most info I can find says 4w veg but i think it’s a bit to short for what I want to achive.

Many thanks to all btw :slight_smile:

@Stratos is it the two probe style soil meters ? If so don’t trust it but a digital ph meter you can get a inexpensive one but I suggest getting the best one you can afford
But if $ is a concern Amazon has some fir $20 that work fine


#23

Or just search here “pH meter”. @ktreez420 have a good one for 43-45$ (“Apera Instruments AI209 PH20 kit” search this on Amazon)

Welcome to forum! You’ve got a lot of good advice so far. Just wanted to say hi & you’ve got some pretty girls


#25

Hi! If you want to check your pH tester, go to a pet store or a place that specialises in tropical fish and get yourself a bottle of pH’ed water. That way you can calibrate your pH meter to the pH of the water. I bought pH 7.0 but I’m sure there are others. Calibrate your pH meter regularly and you should be okay. You’re in Europe, I assume, a bottle of pH’ed water is around €6 or so. Good luck!:+1:

@Countryboyjvd1971
Yes, a two probe syle. I knew they weren’t good. Will search for a better one. Will search for a good one asap. No cheap tools for my girl. Only the best because it makes a difference at the end. Don’t like amazon because the shiping gets always higher than the price of purchased thing.

@M4ur
Thank You for the product name.

@Laurap
Thank You so much! This community is amazing.

@DieHigh55
I wanted to check my soil phmeter. Turns out it’s not reliable. Thank You for the advice because I will use this technique when I need to recalibrate it because i got the calibrating solution just for the first calibration.

@All :slight_smile:

Here is my lady sending kisses to all of You before she goes to sleep. She is working hard all day long and need some rest now. :smile:

Happy growing to all!


#27

Welcome @Stratos. I will enjoy following along with your grow. Your lady looks great!


#28

On what continent you are @Stratos? I’m not interested about the country.


#29

I’m from Europe. Balkan lands. :smile:


#30

I’m from est Europe and I have the same problem with shipping costs so I use the alternative to get what I need. I should guess your location from your nickname :joy:


#31

I don’t feed mine for about the first month. Maybe a bit more, 6weeks, The soil seems to do all the work.

I feed about week after I put them in thier final 5 or 3 gallon pot. Which is always their 3rd home. I start with a 5" pot, then iirc its 7" then into their final home.


#32

@M4ur Try guessing :laughing: I pay 2-3 € shipping when ordering from China. Wtf with USA?! But then again, the quality is low sometimes so they are good for basic stuff.

@TheDuke I had problems with ordering the smart pots because of the shipping and had to go with a normal pot. I wanted to grow her in the smart pot from the beginning and transplant her 2 to max 3 times because of watering so my roots don’t die from excesive watering in big pots. Unfortunately got the pots only 2 days ago and intend to transplant her at the begining of the veg stage +/-
I will put her in a 10 gal pot so she has enough space for the roots to grow big.


#33

I don’t pay the shipping and I’m ordering from china to but from aliexpress… You will find fabric pots very cheap and good quality.


#34

Never used aliexpress but I already see they have a wider option of sizes than on the site I order from.
Will search tonight to see what they have for this kind of hoby :slight_smile: Thanks

Question for all:

Which Mars Hydro LED light (power and type) should be enough for my girl from start to end if iI keep her in a closet which is 100x100x200. I have already mounted some extra fluo tubes and cfl lamps on sides for extra underlight when she grows.

For now I have “300w” led ufo light which consumes only 60w when active so i don’t think it has the power of 300w led light and will be too weak for her when she spread.

I have no budget for the light right now but I want only the best for her. Need to know the type I need so I can start to combine for the budget asap.

Keep growing and stay green people!! :upside_down_face:


#35

I have a meizhi 450w(192w real) for 2x2x5 (60x60x150cm) but for your space I think 2 of this will be OK or 3x300


#36

Good luck with the grow @Stratos! I just ordered my WW autoflowers, I’ll definitely be following along to see your results!
