4th Week of Vegetative growth

How are you testing ph? Reason I ask is cause in your above post you said between 7.0 and 7.5


#43

I got a ph test kit with the indicator liquid and the test tube. It goes up by .5 at a time and I wasn’t 100% sure if it was 7.0 or 7.5 by the colors on the chart.


#44

I’ve also got a soil ph test kit which I’ve used as well and my soil ph read 7.0


#45

You need to invest in a apera digital ph meter. The liquid stuff you’re using is hard to read like you stated. I used to use it until I got ph pen. I bought a cheap $15 vantakool and it quit working after about 2 months. So just get a good one


#46

Soil should neutralize in a day or two


#47

Should I ph my water down a bit more maybe to 6.0 try and balance it out?


#48

Run off has now tested 7.0. Could I get away with not flushing and trying to lower over time or better off flushing now?


#49

It will neutralize just let it dry out before next water


#50

I’ve been testing my soil as well over the last few days twice a day every time its tested back 6.5. Could it be a nutrient deficiency maybe not enough of something?


#51

Or should I hold off adding nutes for a while?


#52

Try it out watch for reaction plant has use your common sense and if all else fails Google it

I wouldn’t flush your pot. Your PH is fine. It’s not too out of whack. And can be fixed by just watering with a low ph (6.1-6.3) and getting good runoff, it will begin to drop. I would only flush if you’re having problems. Flushing can create problems too,
